staff - February 13, 2016 5:57 am

The man suspected of running over a Wichita police officer during a pursuit is now charged with aggravated battery of a law enforcement officer.

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) – A 28-year-old man is behind bars after having second thoughts about an early morning convenience store robbery and turning himself in.

The Wichita Eagle reports a man walked into a Kwik Shop in northeast Wichita around 2 a.m. Friday, indicated he had a weapon and demanded money from the cash register.

Wichita Police Captain Doug Nolte says the employee gave the robber a small amount of cash and the thief left in a black Honda CRV.

Soon after that officers at Patrol North noticed a black Honda CRV drive up at the bureau offices.

The man was interviewed and booked, and officers found evidence of the robbery in his car.
