Family robbed of money, drugs

WICHITA — Two men stole marijuana and cash during a robbery at a house in southeast Wichita Tuesday night, police said.

The incident occurred at about 9 p.m. in the 2000 block of East Maywood, Lt. Doug Nolte said. Two men knocked on the front door of the house near Hydraulic and 55th Street South and were let inside.

Once inside, one of the two suspects pulled a gun and demanded money and marijuana. The suspects took turns hitting a man and his son, who is in his early teens, with the gun before they left. A woman at the house was not injured.

The suspects then left the house. The adult male victim in the robbery was arrested on suspicion of multiple drug charges.
