Wichita police are looking for a 24-year-old man who they say beat up a man and woman early Saturday morning.

The incident happened at 2:45 a.m. in the 1000 block of Meikle Road, near Seneca and 47th Street South. Earlier that evening, a 34-year-old man had met a female friend at a bar and gave her a ride home, police said.

As soon as the two pulled into the woman’s driveway, two cars pulled up behind the man’s vehicle, blocking the 34-year-old man in the driveway, according to Sgt. Scott Brunow, spokesman for the Wichita Police Department.

The 23-year-old woman told the man one of the vehicles belonged to her ex-husband.

The 34-year-old man was then knocked unconscious and his cellphone taken, Brunow said. The woman was also assaulted by her ex-husband, he said.

“We do know who he is and are currently looking for him,” Brunow said.
