TOPEKA, Kansas – Topeka police are looking for two men who attacked a Kansas Shrine Bowl player.

It happened Saturday shortly before 11 p.m. at the Phillips 66 at 810 SE 15th.

The victim, 18-year-old Brett Sterbach, says he was seated in a car when he was approached by two Hispanic men.

They asked Sterbach if he had a lighter.

Once Sterbach opened his car door the suspects demanded Sterbach’s wallet.

When the suspects did not get the wallet, one of them stabbed Sterbach with a knife.

Sterbach was able to wrestle the knife away from the subject and defend himself with the knife.

Both suspects in the robbery where seen leaving in a Blue Dodge Ram.
