July 1, 2013

Two men escaped on foot after robbing an apartment near Lawrence at gunpoint Monday morning and leading police on a short vehicle chase. The suspects left the apartment in the 4300 block of Aristocrat Way just after midnight in a stolen car with nearly $2,200 in items, including two flat-screen TVs, two cellular phones and an Xbox 360. Police attempted a traffic stop, and the suspects crashed into a fence before running to a nearby apartment complex where they lost their pursuers.
