BONNER SPRINGS, Kan. (AP) -

Authorities are asking for help in identifying a Bonner Springs armed robbery suspect who threatened to shoot a payday loan clerk.

The Wyandotte County Sheriff's Office said about $1,300 was taken from Advance America, located at 608 Tulip, about 10:30 a.m. Saturday.

The 22-year-old clerk was working by herself when the suspect entered the business and inquired about a title loan.

At that time, the clerk was assisting another customer, and he was told Advance America does not do title loans. The suspect left but returned about 2:50 p.m. and inquired about a payday loan.

The clerk told him due to verification requirements the loan would not be available until Monday.

The suspect then pulled out a long-barrel gun, and told her "he was sorry," authorities said.

The suspect told her to lock the front door and take him to the safe, which she did. He then demanded her to open the safe and removed the money.

The man told her to go the bathroom and count to 60. If she left the bathroom before then, the suspect told her she would be shot.

Throughout the robbery, the victim said she was in fear of her life and thought she was going to be killed. The victim was not harmed.

The suspect is said to 5'10" tall, weighing 160 pounds with brown hair.

Authorities ask if you know who this man is, please call the TIPS Hotline at 816-474-TIPS.
