Police investigate weekend robberies

Wichita police are investigating an armed robbery and attempted armed robbery of two businesses Saturday morning.

The first happened at about 6:45 a.m. at Sonic Drive-In, 2313 W. Pawnee. Two 30-year-old employees told police a man entered the restaurant armed with a handgun and demanded money. He also took one of the employee’s cellphones. He left on foot. No one was injured.

Then at 10:30 a.m., officers were sent to Circle K, 515 N. Seneca, after a 25-year-old employee said a man went into the store, claimed he had a gun and demanded cash and cigarettes. She went to push the alarm and the man left, Davidson said. No one was injured and the man didn’t take anything.

If you have any information, Wichita police ask that you call Crime Stoppers at 316-267-2111.
