Kansas City police need help finding a suspect who robbed a local Wal-Mart.

At 10:27 p.m. on August 6, a man showed a gun and demanded money from a Wal-Mart employee standing at a register drawer. The employee placed money into a sack and the suspect walked out and fled in an unknown direction.

Police have obtained surveillance video of the incident that happened at the Wal-Mart at 11601 E. US 40 Highway. The suspect is described as a younger black man wearing a tan hat, eyeglasses, black t-shirt and dark colored pants.

The suspect arrived at the store with a white man who was wearing a blue baseball hat, a blue Denver Broncos t-shirt and dark colored shorts. Police say the two men appeared to know each other and interacted together inside the business.

Anyone with information is urged to contact the TIPS Hotline at 816-474-TIPS (8477).
