Robbery charges filed


WICHITA (AP) — Three men are facing felony criminal charges in connection with the robbery of an unconscious woman whose purse and wedding ring were taken as she sat unconscious in the drive-thru of a fast food restaurant in Wichita.

The three suspects made their first court appearance Wednesday through a video feed.

Charged with robbery are Daquantrius S. Johnson; Quanique D. Thomas-Hameen; and Keith Byron Hickles.

Their defense attorneys did not immediately return phone messages seeking comment.

Danielle Zimmerman was pulling into a Taco Bell on Dec. 29 when she suffered a brain aneurysm. While unconscious, someone took her purse, a cellphone and her wedding ring. The ring hasn't been recovered.

The case has sparked outrage in Wichita and prompted the mayor to implore the public to help recover the ring.
