A teen with a knife stole an iPad from a 14-year-old girl outside a restaurant Thursday night in Kansas City.

The girl and her 13-year-old friend had just left Church’s Chicken at 24th Street and Van Brunt Boulevard about 6:30 p.m. when three teenage boys wearing hoodies ran up behind them. One teen said, “Give me your (expletive!)”

The girl clutched her iPad to her body and refused.

The teen then pointed a knife at her abdomen, repeated his demand and grabbed the iPad.

The teens, described as 16 to 18 years old, ran west on 24th then north on Quincy Avenue.
