A man knocked on someone's door, telling him someone had broke into his car. Moments later, he had tied the man up, robbing him of his property.
The suspect knocked on the door of a man's apartment around midnight Thursday morning in the 2500 block of W. 31st Street.
"He heard a knock on his door," said Wichita Police Lieutenant Doug Nolte. "When he went to his door, there was an individual speaking in Vietnamese, stating that his car had been broken into."
When the man opened the door, the suspect forced his way into the apartment.
"The suspect had a large knife with him," said Nolte. "He went inside, held the victim at bay, got some zip ties and tied him up."
The suspect stole credit cards and cash from the man.
"After the suspect was gone, our victim managed to crawl outside his apartment," Nolte said. "He yelled as loud as he could. He thinks he was out there for about an hour before a passerby found him, and was able to call 911 and get him secured."
The suspect was described as an Asian man, 30-40 years old, 5-feet-6-inches tall. He was wearing a black shirt, blue jeans and a black mask.
The victim was not injured.
