Woman buying drugs is robbed

WICHITA — A 29-year-old woman called police Thursday to report she had been robbed while she was trying to buy drugs at a house in the 700 block of North Topeka.

Police were investigating the robbery on Friday, said Gordon Bassham, spokesman for the Wichita Police Department.

"When she was confronted by the suspect in the case about her attitude towards him, the woman reports the suspect punched her in the face and took the cash she was going to use to buy drugs, then he fled the scene," Bassham said.

Police are searching for the suspect.
