Wichita police are looking for two suspects accused of beating a man in Old Town late Thursday night and taking his cellphone and set of matching lightsabers.
It happened around 11:45 p.m. in the 100 block of North Mosley. Wichita Police Sgt. Scott Brunow said the 38-year-old man was walking down Mosley with his toy Jedi weapons when he was approached by a man and a woman.
The male suspect allegedly beat the victim to the ground, and then both ran away with the victim's sabers and cellphone.
One suspect is described as a bald white or Hispanic man between 30 and 40 years old, weighing about 330 pounds, and wearing a tan and maroon striped shirt and white shorts. He left the scene in a 1980s model Chevy pickup.
The other is described as a 21-year-old white woman with brown hair, standing about 5-foot-8 and weighing 180 pounds. She was reportedly wearing a turquoise and maroon striped dress and sandals. She left the scene in a maroon SUV.
Anyone with information is asked to call police.
