This was apparently a front page story in the Wichita Eagle.
. . . “Well, why don’t you just go ahead and give me your billfold and I won’t have to pull my gun?” Yager said the man told him.
“I said, ‘Really?’ ” Yager said. “I reached over like I was going to get my billfold and grabbed my gun and stuck it in his face and said, ‘You mean like this?’ ”
The would-be robber’s eyes grew wide and his demeanor suddenly shifted, Yager said.
“He says, ‘Oh, I was just kidding! I was just foolin’ with ya, ya know?’ ” Yager said the man replied.
“Man, you don’t need to do that,” Yager said he told the man. “You was lucky you didn’t get shot. What you need to do is get the hell out of here before you get hurt.”
The suspect removed his hands from his pockets and told Yager, “You have a nice day. I don’t really mean this. I’m just foolin’. I’m going to leave.”
He did just that, running west on Douglas and then south on Walnut in the Delano neighborhood of west Wichita. . . . .
