Burglar strikes south Wichita home

When a Wichita man woke up early Tuesday morning, it seemed unusually cold in his house.

He soon found out why, police said. Someone had forced open a sliding glass door at his house in the 300 block of East Marion Court, Lt. Doug Nolte said. Marion Court is southeast of Broadway and Pawnee, next to the Arkansas River.

The 33-year-old man, who is blind, woke his roommate at around 4 a.m. and asked him to check around the house, Nolte said. The roommate said several smaller items had been stolen, including the man’s iPhone and his wallet.
