CREATED Oct. 25, 2013

Wichita police stopped a liquor store robbery before it got started late Thursday night.

A clerk was working after closing time at Dave's Liquor at 3180 S. Meridian, and she heard noises at the back door. She called 911, and when officers arrived, they saw a man trying to break into the business.

Lt. Doug Nolte said the man was wearing a bandana over his face and socks over his hands. He had several weapons in his possession.  

Officers took the 21-year-old man into custody and booked him into jail for attempted robbery.
