Wichita Police investigate pair of robberies Tuesday

Both were reported hours after they occurred

WICHITA, Kan. - Wichita Police are investigating two robberies Tuesday that were both reported hours after they occurred.

An employee at a gas station in the 200 block of S Hillside, just south of Douglas, reported someone robbed the store at around 2 p.m. Tuesday. The employee said a robber with a knife demanded money and ran away with cash.

Police did not receive a report about that robbery until about two hours later, at 4 p.m.

An hour later, police received a report that a pizza delivery driver was robbed in northwest Wichita. The driver told police four men robbed him outside a vacant home in the 1400 block of N St Francis at around 2 p.m. He suffered what Officer Paul Cruz called "very minor injuries," and the robbers got away with cash and food. 

Police did not receive a report about that robbery until around 5 p.m., three hours after it happened. Officers did not find anything when they searched the area.

Officer Cruz said calling 911 immediately after a crime takes place can help police catch suspects and solve crimes faster.

The suspects in the delivery driver robbery are described as four Hispanic men, all around 18 years old with thin builds. One had a moustache.

The suspect in the gas station robbery is described as a white man, about 5'11" tall, weighing around 180 lbs and wearing a black hoodie and mask.
