The last caper occurred at 9:15 p.m. Friday at the Maize Food Mart west of Kellogg and Maize, Sgt. John Hoofer said Saturday.
A 22-year-old clerk reported that a woman wearing a blue Batman mask came into the store demanding money.

No one was hurt.
The masked woman, described as about 5 feet 6 inches and 175 pounds, left southbound. She had brown hair and was wearing a black shirt and blue jeans.
On Thursday, a woman wearing a blue Batman mask entered the Friends Corner convenience store at 1131 E. 47th St. South at about 3:20 p.m. and demanded money and cigarettes from the clerk, Wichita police Lt. Joe Schroeder said. The clerk complied with the demand.
The robber, who never indicated she had a weapon, was wearing a blue Batman mask with pointed ears and a blue tie-dyed shirt, the clerk told police. She was about 5-feet-7 and had a medium build.
Hoofer said it was possible the two robberies were related. The suspect descriptions are similar, he said. Police still are investigating both cases.
