The robbery was reported to police about 7 p.m. Wednesday in the 2300 block of Wakarusa Drive, said Sgt. Trent McKinley, a Lawrence Police Department spokesman. The victim told police that he had answered a knock at his door and was assaulted by two men who pushed their way inside the apartment and struck him in the face.
