Wichita police are searching for a man they say assaulted a woman and then robbed her of her disability money. It happened just before 1:30 p.m. Saturday at a hotel in the 6100 block of West Kellogg.
The 36-year-old woman told police she asked a friend to drive her to a local grocery store to cash a $2,000 disability check. The man and a friend the woman didn't know picked her up at the hotel, took her to cash the check and then drove her back to the hotel.
Police say the woman's friend went with her into her room where he punched her twice in the face and took her purse that contained the money. Both men then left the scene. The woman was not severely hurt.
Investigators say the victim was able to give them the name of the suspect and they have leads on the identity of the second man. The suspect is described as a bald white man who is 6-foot tall and weighs 225 pounds. He has tattoos on both his arms and his neck.
Anyone with information about the robbery is asked to call the police.
