WICHITA — A 21-year-old man was arrested shortly after a convenience store clerk was robbed in northeast Wichita Wednesday afternoon, police said.
The 53-year-old clerk told police he was carrying a bank bag to his car shortly after 4 p.m. Wednesday at U.S. Gas, 2601 N. Hillside, when he was approached by an armed man who demanded that he surrender the bag to him.
The clerk refused, putting the bag in his car and surrendering his wallet and cell phone instead. The suspect then left the area in a green Ford Explorer.
Following up on information gathered during the investigation, officers went to a house in the 900 block of North Green, where they arrested a 21-year-old man. The victim's wallet and cell phone were recovered, police said.
