Two more armed robberies of businesses in Wichita, including Tuesday night at the Arby's at Rock & Harry, and the Kwik Shop at 29th & Arkansas at 3:00 a.m. Wednesday; this makes for a total of five businesses robbed in a 48-hour period, including three in a fairly close proximity in N. Wichita.

Investigators are trying to determine if any of these robberies might be connected; police say business robberies tend to increase during the holidays towards the end of the year.

During the late spring and early summer months, there are about one or two business robberies a week in Wichita; now, at this time of year, that number has just about tripled -- there are about four or five per week.
