An armed man robbed an east Wichita liquor store Monday night, police said.

The man entered Bobby McGee’s Liquor at 2119 E. Central just after 8:30 p.m. on Monday, pointed a copper-colored handgun at the 39-year-old clerk and demanded cash from the register, Lt. Doug Nolte said.

He also took some bottles of liquor before leaving with the money, Nolte said. The robber is a black man who is about 6 feet tall and 175 pounds, the two clerks on duty told police.

He wore a dark hoodie and dark ball cap, with a blue bandanna covering his face and latex gloves on his hands. He left the area on foot.
