Dillons employees foil robbery attempt

WICHITA — Two employees sprang into action when a man came into the Dillons grocery store at Central and West late Thursday night and tried to rob the business.

The 48-year-old suspect came into the store at 640 N. West shortly before midnight and got into line at a checkout counter, police said. When he drew closer, he grabbed cash from the open register drawer and tried to flee the store.

But a 30-year-old woman who works there grabbed him and held him, police said. A second employee, a 22-year-old man, came over and helped detain the suspect until police arrived and arrested him.
