Topeka, Kan. (KSNT) - At 8:30 a.m., the Shawnee County Sheriff’s Office responded to a 911 call from a residence in the 1800 block of SW Stutley Rd. A white male knocked on the front door of a residence and claimed to work at a gun recall company. He asked the female resident if her husband had recently purchased a gun. The suspect then pulled out a handgun and forced himself into the residence. The female was able to exit the house and run to a neighbor’s house for help.

The vehicle was described as possibly being a late model Ford Focus. The white male is reported to be in his late teens or early 20’s, approximately 5’8” tall, with dark brown hair and a thin build.
