After a man reportedly was robbed at knifepoint in his Leavenworth apartment, the victim went to a neighboring residence to confront the suspects. But a father of one of the suspects allegedly threatened the victim with a piece of pipe, a police spokesman said.
The incidents were reported Saturday.
The robbery was reported at 6:49 a.m. in the 600 block of North Fifth Street. The crime is alleged to have occurred earlier that morning.
The 41-year-old victim reported that he answered a knock at his door. When he opened the door, a man and woman forced their way into the residence. The man allegedly brandished a knife and threatened the victim, according to Maj. Dan Nicodemus, deputy chief of the Leavenworth Police Department.
The woman allegedly took several items from the residence – methadone, pizza, soft drinks, ice cream and miscellaneous tools.
The victim apparently knew the suspects.
Around 9 a.m. the same day, the victim reportedly went to a residence in the same block to confront the robbery suspects. That is when the father of one of the suspects allegedly chased the victim while brandishing a piece of pipe, according to Nicodemus.
No injuries were reported.
