Two men robbed of cellphones, cash
Wichita police are investigating a Sunday morning robbery of two men who were waiting for a woman to arrive at her west Wichita apartment.
The robbery happened at about 2:15 a.m.
The men, both in their 30s, told police they were waiting for the woman to arrive at her apartment in the 200 block of North Acadia — near Maple and Ridge — when two men drove up in a dark-colored Impala.
One man jumped out of the passenger side and pointed a semiautomatic handgun at both of the victims and said: "Guess what time it is? Wrong place and wrong neighborhood," said Wichita Police Sgt. Steve Yarberry.
The robber took cellphones and cash, Yarberry said.
