Two chain restaurants in south Wichita were robbed at gunpoint Thursday night, Wichita police say.
Police got an armed robbery call at around 9 p.m. on Thursday at the Schlotzsky's Deli in the 1100 block of South Rock Road, Wichita police Officer Charley Davidson said.
A 27-year-old male employee was outside the business and approached by two unknown men. One of them had a handgun and they demanded money. They entered the store, got money from the 27-year-old and another employee and left on foot.
No one was hurt in the robbery, Davidson said. The suspects were described as 25-year-old men who were 5-foot-7 with black pants, hoodies and gloves. One had a black bandana and the other had a blue bandana and black shoes with a white stripe.
Police later responded to a robbery call in the Little Caesars Pizza store in the 2500 block of South Seneca at around 10:30 p.m. A man armed with a handgun entered the store and demanded money.
“They were closing up for the evening,” Davidson said. “As they were taking out the trash, the suspect entered through that rear door.”
The suspect got an unknown amount of cash and left the business on foot, Davidson said. No one was injured.
Davidson said residents with information about either robbery can call detectives at 316-268-4407 or Wichita-Sedgwick County Crime Stoppers at 316-267-2111.
