The Lawrence Journal-World reports that the robbery happened around 7:10 p.m. Friday. Police Sgt. Amy Rhoads says the victim told police he met the robber on a dating website. When the man arrived, he brandished a gun and demanded the victim's bank card.

The suspect fled and used the bank card a short time later. No one was immediately arrested.
