Police arrest two Wichita victims in separate incidents

Two victims in separate incidents early Sunday morning wound up being arrested, while the suspects in both cases remain at large, according to police.

The first situation happened at about 1 a.m. in a parking lot in the 2300 block of South Oliver. Two individuals were sitting in a car when a man pointed a handgun at the 42-year-old driver, Wichita police Lt. Doug Nolte said Monday.

The 42-year-old man gave his watch and wallet to the suspect, who ran off.

After the man reported the crime, a Sedgwick County sheriff's deputy determined the victim was wanted on multiple outstanding warrants and had drug paraphernalia in his car. The 42-year-old was arrested at the scene, Nolte said.

The second incident happened at about 3:30 a.m. after an argument between two men in the 1300 block of East Murdock. Both got in their vehicles, one chasing the other.

The victim's car was sideswiped twice by the suspect. The second time was on I-135 near the Second Street exit. The victim's car rolled.

Neither the 32-year-old victim nor his two passengers — a man, 24, and a woman, 22 — were injured. But the 32-year-old was arrested on suspicion of DUI, Nolte said.
