LEAWOOD, Kan. — Leawood Police say they are investigating a strong arm robbery Tuesday morning in the parking lot of Country Club Bank, 11181 Overbrook Road.

The victim said a younger man, described as a black male in his 20s or 30s, short hair and a goatee, wearing a white t-shirt, confronted him at the driver’s door of his car and demanded a bank bag he had with him.

The victim had just come from another bank after conducting a business transaction. After a short wrestling match over the bank bag, the suspect got possession of the bag and jumped into a newer, white SUV with a second black male driving.

The vehicle was last seen southbound on State Line Road from the location. Police said they believe since the suspect demanded the bank bag, the victim was followed from the bank.

Capt. Brad Robbins, Leawood Police Department spokesperson said they were working to obtain video from the bank’s parking lot.
