This article's descriptions sound a lot like the two guys who broke into the "wrong" apartment earlier this week. I post this not to make South Kansas City peeps fearful, but to ask you all to be careful who you open the door to, and to be extra observant these days. It would be good to catch these guys. Also make a note of anyone trying to sell laptops, electronics or cell phones for cheap. From the Kansas City Star:
KC man beaten, tied up, robbed during home invasion
Two robbers armed with a handgun and crowbar barged into a Kansas City apartment Tuesday night and beat and tied up a 19-year-old man.
The robbers stole three televisions, two laptops, cash, jewelry and other electronics. The victim suffered severe swelling to his head, forehead and mouth.
The victim told police he was home in the 10300 block of Hillcrest Road about 8:35 p.m. playing a video game when someone knocked on his door. He looked through the peephole, but could only see the back of a man’s head. When he opened the door to get a better look, two armed men forced their way inside. One suspect hit the victim with a crowbar on his head, and they tied him up with plastic zip-ties. They hit and kicked him in the face then covered him on the floor with a blanket as they ransacked the home.
The victim’s girlfriend came home about 15 minutes later and found her boyfriend covered in blood. She called police.
