Police looking for suspect in convenience store robbery

WICHITA _ A robber walked into the Valero gas station at 731 N. Ridge on Tuesday night and walked out with several hundred dollars, police said.

The man entered the convenience store near the intersection of Ridge and Central at about 10 p.m.

The man put what an employee thought was a gun behind a woman's back, according to the report. The man said "Give me the money," or he threatened to blow out the woman's spine, Lt. Steve Kenney said.

The employee gave him several hundred dollars from the register, and then the man headed northwest on foot.
