Shortly after the Wichita Police Department announced it is investigating the possible connection between two weekend armed robberies, two more aggravated robberies occurred.
Now the department is investigating a connection between the four robberies, as the “descriptions are somewhat similar,” Officer Charley Davidson said Tuesday.
At 9 p.m. on Monday, officers responded to an aggravated robbery at Pete’s Liquor in the 300 block of West Harry, Davidson said. When they arrived, an employee said that a man entered the store, displayed a black handgun and demanded money.
The man took money and liquor before running away.
The black man was described as being in his 30s or 40s, about 5 foot 6 to 5 foot 9 inches tall and with a medium build. He had black facial hear and was wearing a black hoodie, black jeans and a ball cap with a blue bill.
Then, at 3 a.m. on Tuesday, police responded to an aggravated robbery at the QuikTrip in the 1500 block of South Seneca. An employee told police that a man entered the store, displayed a black handgun and demanded money and cigarettes.
The man took both the cigarettes and the money before running away.
The employee described the man as having a medium build, about 6 feet tall and with a short beard. He was wearing a gray sweatshirt and faded blue jeans.
No injuries were reported in either of the reported robberies.
