Three businesses were robbed in Wichita in a span of 15 hours, including two heists in less than an hour on Thursday morning.

A man dressed all in white clothing robbed the Quik Trip in the east part of Wichita at Douglas & Rock; it happened shortly before 2:00 p.m. Wednesday. The suspect waited in line, then approached the counter and demanded money. The suspect ran away to the east with cash.

Two thin male suspects wearing gray hoodies were involved in an aggravated robbery near downtown Wichita; it happened after 4:00 a.m. Thursday at the Circle K gas station at Seneca & McLean. One suspect came into the building and pointed a gun at a 50-year-old female employee, demanding property, but left the store empty-handed. Meanwhile, a 20-year-old female employee was outside in front of the store; she was not working at the time. She was sitting in her car when a second suspect approached, and stole her cell phone. The first suspect was wearing dark jeans, a gray hoodie, and a clown skeleton mask. The second suspect was wearing black sweatpants, a black-and-white bandana covering his face, sunglasses, a ballcap, white gloves, a backpack, and was armed with a handgun. The suspects ran away; the woman's cell phone was recovered nearby at 3rd & Dodge.

About 45 minutes after that, a pair of suspects robbed a Kwik Shop in the southeast part of Wichita at Oliver & George Washington Boulevard. Both suspects entered the business; one of them produced a handgun, demanding property. They ran away with cash and cigarettes.
