HUTCHINSON, Kan. — A Hutchinson man was arrested after Jimmy Johns at 900 East 30th Suite B was robbed Tuesday night. Officers were called to the restaurant at 8:53 p.m.
Employees reported that a male suspect who attempted to conceal his identity, entered the store and demanded currency out of the register.
The suspect implied that he was armed but no weapon was displayed. He obtained an undisclosed amount of currency and fled the location. They figured out who it was quickly and made an arrest.
During the investigation, police were able to link the robber to a robbery at the 1330 East 30th Kwik Shop back on Jan. 16 just after 10 p.m. The robber in that case also tried to hide who he was and said he was armed but never showed a weapon.
As a result of the investigation, 28-year-old William R. Webster of 903 East 31st was arrested for the following:
Kwik Shop: 1) Robbery 2) Aggravated Assault: committing felony, placing subject in fear while disguised.
Jimmy Johns: 1) Robbery 2) Aggravated Assault: committing felony, placing subject in fear while disguised.
All suspects are considered innocent until found guilty in a court of law.
This case is still under investigation, and this is all the information that is being released at this time.
