OLATHE, Kan. — Janene Davis was frightened to hear a woman was threatened with a knife just across the street from the nail salon she goes to in Olathe.
“It’s kinda scary because I know people that live here, my mom lives right down the street, I actually have a friend who lives in the apartment complex,” Davis said.
Police say near 118th and South Shannan Street in Olathe they received a report that a woman had been robbed early Friday morning.
“The victim states that she was getting into her car at that location, a black male forced her into her car. He sat in the drivers seat and drove her behind a nearby business,” said Sgt. Bryan Hill, from the Olathe Police Department.
The woman claims she was then threatened.
“That subject produced a knife and demanded ATM cards and cash. Our victim didn’t have any ATM cards, but gave them that cash,” Hill said.
