Wichita police have released security video images from two recent robberies — one of them early Tuesday morning — hoping residents will recognize the perpetrators.
A man entered the Walgreen’s at Central and Maize Road shortly after midnight Monday and pulled a gun on a pharmacy employee, Lt. Paul Cruz said in a prepared statement. He ordered her to provide numerous medications, then ran from the store in an unknown direction.
He is a black male in his 20s to 30s, who is thin and about 6-feet-1. He was wearing a gray hoodie, gray sweatpants, white shoes, and a gray hat with a round white logo on the front with black lettering. The case number is 18C9365.
Last Wednesday, officers responded to an armed robbery at the C-Store in the 800 block of South Oliver, Cruz said. An employee told the officers a woman came into the store and pointed a handgun at him, demanding money. The suspect took the money and then ran from the store.
She was a black woman about 25 years old, who was 5-feet-7 and had a medium build. She was wearing a black jacket and black tights and carried a black gym bag and silver handgun.
