Wichita police are investigating an attempted robbery that happened late Saturday in the 500 block of West Central, near Waco.

The incident happened shortly after 10:50 p.m., according to Sgt. Scott Brunow, spokesman for the Wichita Police Department.

An 18-year-old man was walking in the area when he was approached by three men who knocked him to the ground, beat and kicked him, Brunow said. The three took his wallet and after finding no money, fled on foot.

The man was taken to Via Christi Hospital St. Francis where he was treated for minor injuries.
