Woman robbed in shopping center parking lot

August 3, 2016

Shawnee Police say a woman was robbed by a man with a gun Tuesday morning in a busy shopping center.

Major Dan Tennis of the Shawnee Police Department says officers were called to the parking lot of the Price Chopper, 12010 Shawnee Mission Parkway, around 10 a.m. on an armed robbery.

The woman was sitting in her car in the parking lot just east of the Price Chopper when a black male leaned in the driver's window.

"The suspect was armed with a handgun," Tennis said. "He leaned over the victim and took her wallet out of her purse."

Police say the suspect is a black male in his 20's, about 5ft 9in tall, with a skinny build. He was last seen wearing a red shirt, red bandanna and black shorts.

"Detectives are following up leads on this case," Tennis said.
