WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) — Wichita Police were called to a reported robbery Thursday in the 10000 block of East 21st St. North around 6:15 p.m.

A 23-year-old man working security at the business told police that he was attempting to apprehend an unknown man for shoplifting when a struggle ensued.

During the struggle, the suspect’s coat — containing his wallet — came off and the suspect fled on foot. A short time later the suspect returned and pointed a handgun at the man and demanded his coat. The coat was returned to the suspect and he fled in an unknown vehicle.

The suspect was later located in the 1500 block of E. MacArthur. He was booked for aggravated robbery and theft.
