Two armed men robbed an insurance business at closing time Thursday in south Wichita, police said.

They entered Auto Acceptance Insurance at 1644 S. Oliver at about 5 p.m. and ordered the three people inside to the floor, Lt. Doug Nolte said. The first suspect had a long-barreled handgun, while the second had a black handgun, witnesses told police.

One of the robbers kept an eye on the people on the floor and the other went to the back of the business and retrieved a locked box containing several thousand dollars in cash, Nolte said.

They left in a champagne-colored Honda Accord with no hubcaps and the partial license plate 555, driving west on Harry from Oliver, Nolte said.

Both suspected robbers are black men, he said. The first is between 25 and 30 years old, about 5-foot-6-6 and 130 pounds.

The second is about 20 years old, 5-foot-3 and 150 pounds.
