A robbery on South Broadway late Thursday night led police to arrest a man wanted in three ATM-related robberies this past December.

Wichita police Sgt. Nikki Woodrow identified the man suspected in all four robberies as Kristopher Williams, 23. Police arrested him a short time after the robbery Thursday night. Williams is being held in jail on a $200,000 bond, records show.

Woodrow said the latest robbery occurred at 11:55 p.m. Thursday in a parking lot at 2100 S. Broadway when two men approached a 65-year-old man and shoved him down and took cash from his wallet. The 65-year-old had minor injuries.

A second suspect in the South Broadway robbery was described as a black man in his mid-20s, wearing a white shirt and blue jeans.

Williams was wanted in three robberies this past December in which someone took people to ATMs and ordered them to withdraw money, Woodrow said.

Another person believed to be involved in the earlier robberies has already been arrested.
