Aaron Stricker, 27, was arrested at 1420 N. Fairview and booked into the Sedgwick County Jail shortly before 9 p.m. Tuesday. Phouthalaksa Phomphihak, 32, was arrested after he turned himself in at City Hall and was questioned by police. He was arrested at about 8:30 p.m. Tuesday, records show.

“We have six total” arrests in the case, Lt. Doug Nolte said Wednesday. “We are not looking for anyone else.”

The other four people arrested in connection with the case are:
