Armed men rob man, force him to drive across town

Wichita police are investigating a robbery incident in which a 23-year-old man told police that three men forced him into a vehicle in east Wichita and made him drive to Sedgwick County Park early Saturday evening.

The robbery happened shortly before 8 p.m., according to Sgt. Joe Kennedy, spokesman for the Wichita Police Department.

Kennedy said officers responded to the robbery call where the man told police he was in the 3500 block of North Rock Road when the three men, who were armed with guns, approached him.

The man was uninjured and told police the men demanded his money and food.

Once at the park, the men released him and left in a 1990s Chevy Caprice.
