Shawnee Police are investigating after a woman says she was robbed while walking to work this morning.

The incident was reported shortly after 5:45 Sunday morning in the parking lot of the Arbor Square apartments, located in the 7600 block of King Street. The apartments are just west of Nieman Road, on the south side of 75th Street.

The victim told police that she was walking through the parking lot when a black male approached her, displayed a black handgun and demanded her cell phone and cash. She complied with the suspect, who then fled the area in a vehicle. He was last seen driving eastbound on 75th Street from the apartment complex.

The suspect was described as a younger black male with a caramel complexion. He was last seen wearing a black jacket with a red shirt underneath, and a black stocking cap.

The getaway vehicle was described as a white, late 1990's or early 2000's model Jeep with the spare tire mounted on the back. A Dodge Stratus passenger car was also seen leaving the area at the same time. Police are not sure if this vehicle was involved in the incident.

Police continue to investigate and say the victim was not injured in the incident.

A similar robbery was reported earlier Sunday morning near the intersection of 75th Street and Wornall Road in Kansas City, Missouri.

Anyone with information is asked to call Shawnee Police at 913-631-2155 or the TIPS Hotline at 816-474-8477.
