Police say they think two people pretended to be a woman in order to rob a 19-year-old man in a south Wichita apartment.
Officer Charley Davidson said a 15-year-old, whose name was not given, and 20-year-old Ricky D. Wright were both arrested on charges of aggravated robbery. Davidson said officers think the two suspects pretended to be a woman in text messages and lured the victim to an apartment complex in the 4200 block of South Hydraulic. The victim arrived around 1:15 p.m.
“When entering the apartment complex building he was approached by Wright and the 15-year-old male, who pulled out a handgun and a knife,” Davidson said.
Police said the two took off in a red Honda Civic with the victim’s money before being stopped by police in the 1300 block South Ellis. Davidson said officers recovered a gun, knife and money stolen from the victim. The two suspects were taken into custody without incident.
