The Circle K convenience store at 201 W Britton Road in Oklahoma City has been the target of armed robberies. In two weeks, the store was robbed three times. 

Police describe the most recent armed robber as a Hispanic man, wearing tan clothing and a mask. The clerk told police he was holding a rifle and demanded money before leaving the scene on foot. No injuries were reported in this incident.

The first two robberies also involved a weapon. The first happened on Dec. 27 and the second incident happened the next day.

“It appears that these three individual crimes were unrelated,” said Officer Megan Morgan with the Oklahoma City Police Department.

One suspect was arrested from the second incident. Mikah Wolfe was booked into the Oklahoma County Jail on the Tuesday, the same day he robbed the store. He was involved in another thrift store robbery and arrested during a traffic stop.

Police are investigating to see if the first and third incidents are related, but are unclear at this point.

In the meantime, Circle K remains open for business. News 9 has reached out to the corporate office for comment.

Police are asking anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers at 405-235-7300.
