Wichita police are investigating two convenience store robberies that occurred late Saturday and early Sunday morning.
A Valero station at 815 S. Meridian, near Kellogg, was robbed at 9:45 p.m. Saturday, according to Sgt. John Hoofer, spokesman for the Wichita Police Department. Four men entered the store; two carried guns. A 26-year-old clerk was ordered to fill a backpack with money.
She did as she was told, Hoofer said. The robbers also took cigarettes from the store.
Then, at 4:15 a.m. Sunday, a Phillips 66 station was robbed in the 1200 block of South Tyler Road, also near Kellogg. A 36-year-old attendant told police two men robbed her at gunpoint. They took cash, a pack of gum and cigarettes.
Never miss a local story.
There were no injuries reported in either robbery, Hoofer said.
Police searching the neighborhood surrounding the Phillips 66 station robbery recovered one of the guns used in the incident, he said.
