Police seek woman in robbery

Kansas City police are asking for the public’s help to identify a woman who allegedly stole property Thursday afternoon from a Hen House, 6238 N. Chatham Ave.

Police said the white woman was approached by an employee of the supermarket as she attempted to leave without paying for the property. The suspect assaulted the employee, police said, and as the employee attempted to detain her a man ran up and helped her get away from the employee.

Police described the woman as between the ages of 25 and 35, 5-feet 7-inches to 5-feet 9-inches tall, and of average build. She was last seen wearing a pink shirt. The man was described as black, approximately 40 years old, 5-feet 10-inches to 6-feet 2-inches tall and of average to skinny build. Both suspects fled in a white mid-size, four-door car, possibly an early to mid-2000s Toyota.

Anyone with information is urged to contact the TIPS Hotline at 816-474-TIPS (8477).
