OKLAHOMA CITY - He spent nearly a year dodging bullets in Afghanistan, only to come home and have a gun stuck in his face at Penn Square Mall. 

"Jake" is an Army National Guardsman from Midwest City, who just returned from a 9-month stint patrolling Afghanistan.  But he says this Tuesday afternoon he was robbed at gunpoint in the lower level parking garage at the mall.

Jake says he had just entered his pickup truck with a new iPad he had just purchased, when a man stuck a gun to his face and demanded the iPad.  Jake says he handed over the $600 dollar device and the suspect ran away. 

A security guard was able to give police a partial tag number of the getaway car.  Police say they're looking for three suspects. 

The good news is the Penn Square Apple Store that sold Jake his iPad, replaced the stolen one for free. 

Jake doesn't want his last name made public, because his assailants are still out there.
