Topeka Police are investigating a late-night attempted robbery to the Kwik Shop at 17th and Topeka Boulevard.

Officers were called just after 11:45 p.m. Tuesday. The victim said the suspect, a black man wearing a black and white hoodie who was about 6’2″ and around 285 pounds told the clerk he had a gun under his shirt and demanded money. The clerk wouldn’t give up the cash, so the suspect stole merchandise and then fled on foot. Officers could not find the man when they searched for him.
