Police are looking for a suspect who robbed at least four Oklahoma City stores at gunpoint. The most recent robbery happened on Sunday, August 17 at T and H Discount Cigarettes, located at 300 S.W. 59th Street.
An employee told police that as the suspect walked into the store, he pulled out a gun and pointed it at the employee. The employee said he became scared and ran towards the back of the store.
The suspect, police said, was unable to chase the employee. But he did attempt by following the employee down the glass wall, pointing the weapon at him as he ran. After the suspect could no longer see the employee, he reportedly ran away from the store.
Police believe the same man is responsible for at least three other robberies in south Oklahoma City.
On July 8, police responded to the robbery of Q Mart, located at 535 S.E. 59th Street. A clerk told police that a man came into the store and asked to buy some cigars. He then pulled out a gun and said, “Give me everything you got in the register and don’t touch any button.”
The clerk said she gave the suspect all the cash in the register.
On July 6, police responded to the report of an armed robbery at Valero, located at 2701 S. Shields. A man reportedly came into the store pretending to be a customer. But he later pulled out a gun and demanded money.
