Wichita police say they’ve charged four teenagers in the armed robbery of a party bus and the beating of its driver.
Lt. James Espinoza says the boys are 14-17 years old. He says they robbed four people of cellphones, wallets and money on Sept. 5 and that one boy was armed with a shotgun.
The driver was knocked out and suffered “numerous fractures to his face.” An update on the driver’s condition wasn’t released.
The teens are each charged with four counts of aggravated robbery and one count of battery. They haven’t been identified.
A spokesman for the Sedgwick County District Attorney’s Office says it hasn’t been determined if any of them will be tried as adults.
