Wichita police have arrested a man, William Callison, 44, saying he twice robbed the Intrust Bank branch inside a Dillons store at 31st South and Seneca earlier this month.

The first robbery was Oct. 9 and the second was Monday, said Wichita police Lt. Steve Kenney.

In the second incident, police said, a slightly built man drove off in a silver Ford Explorer after the robbery.

The man entered the store at Seneca and 31st Street South at about 2:30 p.m., went to the Intrust Bank branch inside the store and handed the teller a note, Kenney said on Monday. Kenney said the note read “Give me all the money and do not hit the alarm.”

The tellers complied and the robber walked out of the store and drove away, Kenney said.

In the Oct. 9 robbery, police said a man passed a note demanding money to tellers at the bank branch shortly before 1 p.m.

He was last seen pulling out of one of the parking lot’s south entrances in a small red or maroon compact vehicle, police said.

There were no injuries in either robbery, police said.
