"Wait, You're Not Supposed to Leave"

On November 14th around 10:33 p.m., Overland Park Police responded to a report of an attempted armed robbery that occurred at a restaurant in the 10500 block of Metcalf Ave.  

The suspect entered the business and demanded the employee to open the cash register. He claimed to have a weapon in his pocket that he would use if she didn't comply.  Instead, the employee quickly left the register area and yelled for others inside to call 911. Our suspect fled the business without the cash after the cashier’s unexpected maneuver. 

Thankfully, no one was injured and, better yet, the would-be robber went away empty-handed. However, we still want to identify him and hold him accountable for his actions.

The suspect is described as a white male in his early 20’s, approximately 5’10” tall, with a thin build, short dark hair, and an olive complexion.  He was wearing a black jacket and dark pants.  The suspect was seen leaving the area in a silver Jeep Liberty.

Please look at the pictures below and if you have information on this person’s identity, contact the TIPS HOTLINE at 816-474-TIPS or the Overland Park Police at 913-344-8750.
