Police released surveillance photos of a man who attempted to rob a northwest Oklahoma City restaurant.

According to police, on June 25, officers responded to the incident at Arby’s, located at 1414 N.W. 23rd Street. An employee told police that the suspect sat in the dining area for about 30 minutes before he approached her at the register.

The employee said the man acted as if he had a gun in his pocket and demanded money. She said she never actually saw a gun.

According to police, the employee told the suspect that she couldn't open the register unless he ordered something. The suspect reportedly said “just ring me up for something.” The employee then told the man that she needed his name for the order. At that time, the suspect said his name is “Cody.”

The employee, who is visibly pregnant, pretended to be having labor contractions. She went to a table to sit down so she could alert other employees, according to police.

During that time, another employee walked up to the suspect, who then left the restaurant and fled in a late 1990’s, early 2000’s model, white, Toyota Camry.

Police said the suspect did not get away with any money. It is unclear if the suspect’s real name is “Cody.”

On Thursday, police released several surveillance photos of the suspect. If you recognize this man, or have any information, call Crime Stoppers at (405)-235-7300. Callers can remain anonymous, and may be eligible for a cash reward.
