An Oklahoma City man says he wasn't fooled when a man positioned his hand in the shape of a gun and tried to threaten him with it.

Around 4:30 a.m. on Tuesday, August 20, a man opened his garage door at his home northeast of NW Expressway and May Avenue so he could let his dog out and grab his newspaper. The man, who's in his late 60s, said as he walked back inside and opened the door from his garage to his kitchen, he turned around and saw a man standing right behind him.

Police said that man was 26-year-old Kirt Lloyd. The victim told police Lloyd was wearing a white T-shirt, and had his hand positioned in the shape of a gun under the shirt.

The victim said Lloyd demanded the keys to his pickup truck, but the victim refused because he could tell Lloyd didn't have a real gun. The victim said Lloyd hit him in the face with his fist but the victim retaliated, hitting Lloyd and knocking him to his knees.

The victim said he ran into the kitchen to grab a skillet so he could hit Lloyd again, and that's when the suspect grabbed the victim's keys from a key holder on the wall just inside the door. Police said Lloyd then ran to the truck, jumped inside and drove away.

The victim was not seriously hurt.

Police later found and arrested Lloyd for robbery, kidnapping, assault and battery, and receiving/concealing stolen property.
