Police are looking for a man who robbed a northwest Oklahoma City business at knife-point.

According to Oklahoma City police, the incident happened on Tuesday, March 8, at Boost Mobile, located at 2230 N. MacArthur Blvd. in Oklahoma City. A male suspect reportedly walked into the store and asked about a phone. When an employee turned around to get him a phone out of the cabinet, police said the suspect pulled out a knife and said to the employee, “Don’t push any alarm buttons and just give me the money.”

The employee said she opened the cash register and handed the suspect all the cash inside. The suspect then told her to go the bathroom before leaving the store with an undisclosed amount of cash.

The suspect is described as a Hispanic man in his late 30s. He has black hair, brown eyes and a small mustache. He was wearing a black beanie and a brown work coat.

On Wednesday, March 16, Oklahoma City police released a surveillance photo taken of the suspect. If you recognize this man, or have any information, call Crime Stoppers at (405)-235-7300 or submit a tip online. Callers can remain anonymous and may earn a cash reward.
