Olathe robbers tried the "hard sell," police say

From Olathe PD: On August 29th at approximately 9:39 pm officers from the Olathe Police Department were dispatched to 1000 N. Ridgeview (Two Trails Park) in reference to a reported aggravated robbery. Upon arrival officers contacted several victims/witnesses who advised the following; earlier, two male subjects approached the victims at the park offering to sell them some electronic equipment. The victims declined at which point one of the male suspects displayed a handgun and subsequently took personal items belonging to the victims. Both suspects fled on foot.

No shots were fired and no injuries were reported.

The officers' investigation led to the location of both suspects who were arrested shortly thereafter and charged with Aggravated Robbery. Both suspects, one adult and one juvenile, were taken into custody without incident.
