Wichita police are looking for three men who apparently were responsible for two residential robberies that occurred early Monday in northwest Wichita.

Lt.. Doug Nolte said the first robbery was reported at about 1:15 a.m. by a woman who said three men armed with a black shotgun forced their way into her house in the 1500 block of Montana, which is southeast of 21st and Amidon. The men left with a laptop and keys, Nolte said.

At about the same time, Nolte said, a man living in the same block told police that he was tied up and robbed by intruders who were armed with a black handgun. A cell phone, laptop and cash were taken in that robbery, Nolte said.

Nolte said the robbers may have been driving a tan Pontiac that was found parked near the scene of the robberies. There was a black shotgun in the back seat of the car, Nolte said, and a handgun was found in a nearby trash can.
