Police are asking the public to assist to help identify suspects in an aggravated robbery at 7:45 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 10, in the 800 block of Kansas Avenue.

According to a Kansas City, Kansas, police spokesman, two suspects entered the store and lingered for an extended amount of time.

One male brandished a weapon and pointed it at the victim, a store employee, according to the spokesman.

The man then ordered the employee around at gunpoint while an unidentified female suspect acted as a distraction, according to the spokesman. The male demanded property and cash, and both suspects fled on foot, the spokesman stated.

The male was wearing a gray “Champion” hoodie, black ball cap with lettering, possibly stating “Business,” and dark-colored Nike tennis shoes, according to police.

The female had her hair up and covered by a black Nike ball cap, according to police.

Both were wearing standard medical masks. The female appears to be several inches taller than the male, police stated.

The gun appeared to be a silver semi-automatic handgun with an extended magazine, police said.

The robbery is under investigation by the Kansas City, Kansas, Police Department’s Criminal Investigation Bureau. Anyone with information was asked to call the TIPS hotline at 816-474-TIPS.
