A mugger punched a man in the face and stole his wallet on North Broadway early Saturday, Wichita police reported.

The 41-year-old victim described his assailant as a white man, 30 to 35 years old, about 5 feet, 6 inches tall and weighing 150 pounds with black hair. He was wearing jeans and a red shirt and driving a red 1980s-era four-door Dodge car, said Wichita Police Sgt. John Hooper.

Patrol officers swept the area but found no sign of the car or driver, he said.

The incident occurred outdoors in the 1000 block of North Broadway, about 12:40 a.m.

Hooper said he did not know why the victim was there at that time.
