Couple who grabbed all the dryers angers apartment resident, police say

WICHITA — A couple doing laundry in Wichita was threatened with a baseball bat, apparently after taking up all the clothing dryers in an apartment complex, police said.

The man and woman were doing laundry at about 6:45 p.m. Tuesday in the basement of some apartments in the 3600 block of West 13th Street, near West Street. A man, 34, got angry and threatened them with the bat, Lt. Doug Nolte said.

Police believe they know who the man was; he lives in that apartment building, Nolte said.
