Police: Two men, one with a rifle, take Acura from owner after attacking him

Wichita police are searching for a 1998 black Acura TL that was stolen Sunday morning in the 2400 block of East Shadybrook.

The incident happened at 1:30 a.m. Sunday, police say, near 21st and Grove.

An 18-year-old man told police he was sitting in his car when two men in their 20s approached him. One of the men pointed a rifle at the 18-year-old and demanded his vehicle. When the 18-year-old got out of his Acura, he was knocked to the ground, kicked and punched by both men, according to Sgt. Bob Gulliver, spokesman for the Wichita Police Department.

The driver was taken to the hospital and treated for his injuries.

The license tag on the missing vehicle is 413 HJM, according to police.
