A 47-year-old man was injured in the Twin Lakes neighborhood in the northwest part of Wichita not far from 21st & Amidon, as he was confronting two suspected porch-pirates in a car who were apparently robbing his next-door neighbor.

It happened Thursday afternoon in the 1800 block of N. Woodrow; inside the car were the driver, a man with a beard, and a passenger wearing shorts. The victim says the suspects had taken a package containing a television from his neighbor's front porch. The man approached the car, then he was struck, knocked down, and run over as the suspects drove away.

The victim was treated at the hospital for abrasions and lacerations. The suspects' vehicle was a black four-door hatchback with black wheels.
