Wichita police are looking for two suspected gang members who they say robbed a homeowner at gunpoint Friday.

The robbery happened at 2434 E. Harry around Noon. Police say the young homeowner was there with an infant at the time.

Police say the homeowner knows the suspects. So, he let them in the home not thinking anything of it. But once inside, the homeowner says the men pulled a handgun and cleaned him out of all the money in the house.

In addition to leaving with money, the homeowner told police the suspects took a television and a lady's purse.

Police say they have a good idea who the suspects are and they say those suspects are likely gang members.

"I think they have been involved in a couple other residential robberies so we have a good lead on who they are," Sgt. Bruce Watts said.

Police say the suspects showed up at the home today in a tan-colored Lincoln.
