A woman who answered a knock on her west Wichita door late Wednesday night was greeted by two strangers — one of them armed with a gun, police said.
They forced their way inside the house in the 200 block of South Robin, near Maple and Tyler Road, and ordered three teenage girls to the floor, Lt. Doug Nolte said. The armed man then took the 32-year-old woman into a back bedroom and ordered her to get some cash together. They also took keys to two cars, a laptop computer and a cell phone.
Although the woman did not know either man, Nolte said, a conversation the suspects had indicated they knew the 34-year-old man who lives there. Police aren’t sure why the intruders wanted to meet with the man.
“This is not random,” Nolte said of the crime.
Two 14-year-old girls and a 15-year-old girl were frightened but not injured during the robbery, he said.
Both suspects were white men, the victims told police. One is in his 20s, is about 5-feet-6, wore a black-and-white bandanna over his face and a zip-up hooded sweatshirt, with a black hat and a white T-shirt. The second suspect is about 5-feet-8, has a heavy build and wore a dark shirt and a bandanna over his face.
