TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) -- New details on a string of armed robberies Topeka Police are still investigating.


Thieves entered three businesses Sunday night in the capital city and made away with cash.

At 7:15, officers were on the scene at 1517 SE 6th. That's where Deportes Y Mas workers say four black men, two of them armed, held them at gunpoint. One worker told 13 News her four frightened kids were in the store at the time. No one was injured. Workers say the robbers got away with about one hundred dollars.

At 7:45, across town, officers were called to Dimple Donuts on SW 21st St. Employees say a white man, about 6 ft. tall wearing a red hooded jacket with a dark blue bandana covering his face, entered the store. Workers say the man said he wanted what was in the register. They thought he was joking, pointed at the register and said "well there it is..." That's when workers say the man fled the store. They saw he had a large knife and realized he was serious.

Then just after 8 p.m., the Subway off 17th and Medford was hit. Authorities say a man matching the description of the Dimple Donuts robber threatened the cashier with a knife. Officials say four people were inside at the time. No one was injured during the incident. The thief made off with an unknown amount of cash. Police say they don't know if that suspect took off by foot or vehicle.

If you have any information, call Crimestoppers at (785) 234-0007.
