  • Authorities have released photographs of a man who reportedly robbed a Leavenworth convenience store.
    A clerk suffered a bite to his hand while struggling with the suspect during the April 25 robbery at the BP station at 300 N. Fourth St.
    Investigators have not yet identified the suspect. Leavenworth police released images of the man that were captured by the store's surveillance system.
    The suspect reportedly displayed a handgun and demanded the clerk give him money from the cash register.
    The suspect grabbed money after the clerk opened the register. Then there was a struggle between the two men. That's when the clerk was bitten on the left hand, according to Maj. Dan Nicodemus, deputy chief of the Leavenworth Police Department.
    The suspect eventually fled the scene on foot. He left with the handgun. No shot was fired during the robbery.
    According to a police report, $53 was taken during the robbery. Police collected articles of clothing the suspect discarded during the struggle including a stocking hat and two jackets.
    The clerk was treated for his bite wound at the scene by Leavenworth County EMS personnel, according to Nicodemus.
    The suspect has been described as a black man in his 20s or 30s. He has a thin build and is between 5 feet 7 inches and 5 feet 10 inches tall. He had a shaved head. He may have a goatee and thin mustache. He was wearing all black clothing.
    Nicodemus said anyone with information about the suspect should call Detective Brian Anderson at 651-2260. People also can leave anonymous tips by calling the Leavenworth Police Department's Clue Line at 682-CLUE, or 682-2583.
