SHAWNEE COUNTY – Law enforcement authorities are investigating an attempted armed-robbery and searching for a suspect.
Just after midnight Monday, police responded to an attempted aggravated robbery to employees of Pizza Hut, 2007 SE 29th in Topeka as they left the business, according to Lt. John Trimble.
The victims stated that a white or light skinned black male wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, blue jeans, and a black and white mask approached them as they were getting to their cars.
The suspect then brandished a handgun and asked them for all of their money. The victims had no money to give and the suspect left the area on foot.
Police have not located the suspect, according to Trimble.
