Wichita Police are looking for robbers in connection to two early morning robberies in east Wichita.
The first burglary happened at an apartment in the 1300 block of N. Williamsburg around five o'clock Sunday morning.
Two victims were inside the apartment when a man approached an open window and pointed a handgun at them. The suspect demanded their money, cell phones, and a laptop. The suspect, described as a man in his 20s, was wearing a red shirt and a black baseball hat.
The second burglary happened outside a residence in the same block and neighborhood around 3 o'clock Monday morning.
Two victims were standing in the driveway when a man between the ages of 18 and 25, along with two other individuals, approached them with a handgun and demanded their money, cell phones, and keys to a vehicle.
The suspects left in the vehicle. About two hours later, the vehicle was recovered without any individuals inside.
Robbery detectives are now looking at the possible connection between these two robberies.
