Police are looking for two suspects in an armed robbery at a southeast Wichita apartment Thursday night.
Officers responding to the crime call found the victims at the Walmart on East Kellogg, where the police were told of the robbery, Lt. Doug Nolte said. Two unknown men entered an apartment in the 9500 block of East Lincoln, near Webb Road, at about 6:30 p.m. and ordered the six people inside to the floor.
They demanded drug paraphernalia, then searched a back room and left with drugs and a weapon, Nolte said. None of the victims was injured.
Three of the victims live at the apartment, while the other three were visiting. They included two 22-year-old men, two 19-year-old men, an 18-year-old man and a 14-year-old boy.
The suspects are unknown black men, the victims told police. One is 5-feet-11 and 160 pounds. He wore a white hooded sweatshirt and red pajama pants, the victims said.
The other suspect is 5-feeet-8 and 150 pounds. He wore a red hooded sweatshirt and pants.
