Robbers Hold Up Residents in Topeka

TOPEKA, Kan. - On February 12, 2009, at 1:59 AM, Topeka Police responded to a 911 call reporting a robbery at the home at 237 SE 35th Terrace.

Officers interviewed occupants at the residence and were able to piece together the following information:
There were several people in the residence prior to the robbery taking place. Those in the residence were expecting a couple of friends to arrive when there was a knock on the door. They opened the door to find two male subjects wearing black hooded sweatshirts and ski-masks. The eye holes were big enough for the victims to see and recall some details of the robbers.

Witnesses say one robber was Caucasian and one was African-American. They told police the Caucasian male displayed a silver & black semi-automatic handgun.

During the robbery, the two expected friends arrived becoming victims as well. Some cash was taken from a couple of the victims. The robbers then fled the residence. Witnesses told officers the two criminals got into a larger light blue 4-door, described as similar to a “Lincoln” and drove away eastbound on SE 35th Terr.

Case # 2971-09

Police continue to investigate and ask that anyone with information call detectives at 368-9400 or Crime Stoppers at 234-0007.
