She kept the money in her bra, but that didn’t deter the man called “Shorty” on the street from stealing it from her Tuesday morning.

But he didn’t have the money for long, for police officers found it not far from the South Broadway hotel room where the crime took place.

The incident was reported at 10:45 a.m. Tuesday in the 1600 block of South Broadway, Wichita police Lt. Doug Nolte said. The man came into the woman’s room, threatened her with a knife and took the money from inside her bra with his other hand.

He then fled the room, but dropped or threw the money a short distance from the hotel room. The 20-year-old woman told police she only knows the man by his street name, “Shorty.”

He is a black man about 49 years of age, the victim told police. He is 5-feet-4, has a stocky build and a dark complexion.
