Wichita police are looking for a masked man who demanded cash and a purse from a 73-year-old woman Monday night in the 1400 block of North Coolidge.
The woman was pulling into a driveway of a home in the area when the man approached her at about 10 p.m., Sgt. Nikki Woodrow said. She told police who responded to the address, near 13th and McLean, that she thought the man had a shotgun with him, Woodrow said.
When the woman told the man she didn’t have money or a purse with her, he ran away to the west. Police say the woman couldn’t tell the man’s race or age. But he was thin and 5 feet, 6 inches to 5 feet, 8 inches tall and was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and a mask or scarf covering his face.
The woman was not harmed, Woodrow said.
Police are asking anyone with information about the crime or suspect to call Wichita-Sedgwick County Crime Stoppers at 316-267-2111.
