West Wichita shoe store robbed

A man armed with a knife robbed a west Wichita Famous Footwear Tuesday night.

He went into the store, at 6720 W. Kellogg, just before 9 p.m. and demanded money, Wichita police Capt. Doug Nolte said Wednesday. That’s near Ridge and Maple.

The robber got away with cash. No one was injured.

Police gave this suspect description: He was a 6-foot tall man, weighing about 200 pounds. He wore a black hooded sweatshirt with a white logo, black shoes, a white ballcap with the Adidas logo, dark blue jeans and a red backpack.

Anyone with information about the crime or the man sought is asked to leave an anonymous tip with Wichita-Sedgwick County Crime Stoppers at 316-267-2111, at or using the P3 Tips mobile application.
