TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — An eastern Kansas sheriff says a would-be armed robber left a rural home empty-handed after he confronted the occupant and had the door slammed in his face. Osage County Sheriff Laurie Dunn says a resident of the home in the northern part of the county answered a knock around 6:30 a.m. Thursday. The Topeka Capital-Journal reports the occupant found himself face-to-face with a man holding a gun. The home's occupant slammed the door, locked himself in a bathroom and called for help. Dunn says the gun-wielding man drove away.
