Batman and ‘Robbers’ are charged

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) – Authorities have charged a Wichita woman who they say stole cigarettes and cash from convenience stores while wearing a blue Batman mask.

The Wichita Eagle reports 22-year-old Hailey Baughman and 23-year-old Justin Allen were charged Wednesday with two counts of robbery and one count of attempted robbery. Police say Baughman robbed the stores and Allen drove the getaway car. They claimed to be unemployed and common-law spouses in court filings.

They say the duo is responsible for two robberies in three days.

A third robbery was foiled on Saturday by a clerk who drew a gun on the masked invader. The couple was arrested later that day.

Baughman and Allen are each being held in the Sedgwick County Jail on $25,000 bond. Online jail records didn’t indicate attorneys.
