Shawnee teen stabbed; police investigating

January 6, 2009

Shawnee police are investigating after a teenager was reportedly stabbed outside of his home.

The victim, who is 17 or 18, was preparing to get in his car, parked in the street, about 4:15 p.m. Tuesday near 69th and Halsey streets when the incident occurred. Capt. Bill Hisle said the teen reported a black and silver Ford Bronco pulled up, and a black male got out of the passenger side of the vehicle and demanded the victim's wallet. When the victim refused, the man stabbed him at least once in the lower abdominal area with what police believe was a box cutter knife before returning to the Bronco and fleeing without the wallet.

The victim started to drive himself to the hospital, calling his father on the way, who called police, Hisle said. Dispatchers then called the victim and got him to stop in a parking lot at 75th Street and Quivira, where officers and an ambulance met him. Hisle said the teen was treated for nonlife-threatening injuries.

The victim described his assailant as wearing blue jeans and a black jacket. He did not get a good look at the driver of the Bronco. Hisle said police were continuing to investigate the incident.

"My guess is there's going to be more to this story," Hisle said.
