Wichita police are looking for suspects after a woman was robbed at gunpoint and forced to withdraw thousands of dollars from her bank account.

The incident started at approximately 12 p.m. Tuesday at a Walmart located at the 3030 N. Rock Road. Once arriving, police say a 65-year-old woman reported being approached by a woman who asked for a ride to the Walgreens at 3770 North Woodlawn.

Upon arriving at the Walgreens, the male suspect got out of his car and got into the victim's vehicle. Police say the victim was then robbed at gunpoint by the woman, who stole money from the victim's purse and the victim's wedding ring.

The suspects then forced the victim to drive to a nearby bank and withdraw $8,000 from her bank account.
