A Quik Cash employee opening a Wichita store Tuesday morning was met by an armed robber who had cut a hole through the roof.
He tied her up with zip ties before stealing an undisclosed amount of cash from the payday loan provider, police said.
Wichita police say the employee of the 447 N. Oliver location said the robber confronted her by “running up behind her” and forcing her down to the ground at gunpoint at 8:55 a.m. He then secured her hands behind her back, took money and fled out of a back door.
Police say the robber is a black man in his late 20s who is around 5-feet-9 with a thin build. He was wearing a black ski mask, a black thigh-length coat, dark-colored khaki pants and was armed with a black handgun.
