Armed man robs Dollar General on East 21st

An armed man robbed the Dollar General on East 21st Street on Sunday night, Wichita police said.

The man entered the store in the 200 block of 21st at about 8:40 p.m. and demanded that a clerk at one of the registers give him cash, Lt. Doug Nolte said. That store is between I-135 and Grove.

Customers entered the store, prompting the robber to hide, Nolte said. After they left, the robber re-emerged and collected money from the registers. He then left.

The suspect was dressed all in black, including a black hoodie and black shoes, the victims told police. He was armed with a handgun, Nolte said.
