Police investigate two separate home invasions

WICHITA, Kansas — Police are investigating two home invasions that happened seven hours apart.

The first one was at 11:45 Monday night in the 600 block of South Kansas.

The 54-year-old victim heard someone at his door. He opened it and two unknown men attacked him.

“They forced him to the ground while a 34-year-old female stood by watching,” said Lt. Joe Schroeder, Wichita Police.

They took the victim’s flat screen television and his cell phone and then left.

Officers investigated and arrested a woman the victim knows.

Police say they also recovered some of his property. They are still searching for the two male suspects.

The other home invasion happened at 6:30 Tuesday morning in the 600 block of South Greenwood.

A 26-year-old man and a 22-year-old woman heard someone kick in the back door of their home.

Two suspects with a gun confronted the couple and demanded money.

One suspect held the two at gunpoint while the second suspect searched the house.

The thieves got away with some money and a laptop belonging to Wright Career College.

Police did not say whether they think the cases are related, but the suspect descriptions do not match.
