WICHITA, Kan. (KAKE) -

The Wichita Police Department has arrested a man in connection to a gas station robbery in downtown Wichita.

A media release says officers responded to an armed robbery call at the Quik Trip at 1010 East Douglas  just after 1 a.m. on December 30th. A 23-year-old male employee told officers that a suspect entered the store and handed him a "threatening note" that demanded cash from the register.

The employee handed cash to the suspect who then left the store on foot. No injuries were reported.

Investigators were able to identify 28-year-old Donald Lybarger and connect him to the case. Officers arrested Lybarger without incident on Wednesday in the 3600 block of East Harry. 

Lybarger was charged with one count of aggravated robbery and a KDOC Warrant. He had previously been convicted for violation of the Kansas Offender Registration Act and was on parole during the alleged robbery.
