A 30-year-old man was robbed of several thousand dollars at gunpoint Tuesday evening in his south Wichita home, police said.
The man told police two intruders kicked in the back door of his house at about 7:30 p.m. in the 1600 block of West Gibson, near Seneca and 31st Street South, Doug Nolte said. He was there with his two daughters, ages 5 and 2.
One was armed with a handgun, the other a shotgun. The victim’s hands were bound with white tape, Nolte said, and one of the robbers kept an eye on him as the other searched the house for money. They left with several thousand dollars in cash, Nolte said. The two children witnessed the robbery but were not harmed.
One suspect is a black man who is about 6 feet tall and 300 pounds, Nolte said. He was dressed in black clothing and had a black hooded sweatshirt over his head.
The second suspect, who carried the shotgun, is a black man in his 20s who had a white short-sleeved shirt over a black long-sleeved shirt.
Police think the robbery was not random, Nolte said, even though the victim did not recognize the robbers.
