KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Kansas City Police are looking for two suspects wanted in an armed robbery and assault. It started at the Quik Trip at Truman and Ewing. A mother and her kids were there buying milk at about 11 p.m., Sunday night. They were then confronted at their home by the suspects. At one point, one of the suspects hit one of the kids on the head with a handgun.

The armed robbers are suspected of following the family to their home near 16th and Oakley. They went through the backyard and into the front yard as the family was arriving home. They demanded money and when the family was a little hesitant, the suspects grabbed one of the kids and hit the child over the head with the butt of the gun. Then they took off.

The child's injuries were not serious and the child was not taken to the hospital.
