Charges in Robbery of Unconscious Kansas Driver

WICHITA, Kan. (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.
