Wichita Police is asking for the community's help in solving a robbery of a woman by two suspects in northeast Wichita.

Officer Charley Davidson says the incident started around 4:15 Tuesday afternoon in the parking lot of the Wal-Mart in the 3000 block of North Rock Road. A 66-year-old woman told police she was approached by an unknown female who asked her for a ride to the Walgreen's in the 3700 block of North Woodlawn.

Davidson says video footage from Wal-Mart showed the woman and the suspect being followed out of the parking lot by a man in a silver Cadillac STS. Upon arriving at Walgreen's, the male suspect got out of the Cadillac and into the victim's car.

Investigators say the couple robbed the victim at gunpoint, taking her wedding ring and cash from her purse. The suspects then forced the woman to drive to a nearby bank and withdraw $8000 dollars from her bank account. They got away in the silver Cadillac.

Anyone with any information is asked to call CrimeStoppers at 267-2111 or the WPD robbery division at 268-4518.
