One person was arrested for robbing two people in a vehicle at gunpoint in southeast Oklahoma City, early Saturday morning.

Oklahoma City police responded to the call just after 1 a.m. The victims told the responding officer that a man, now identified as 25-year-old Antonio Ford, approached the passenger side of the vehicle and pointed a gun at the passenger's head.

According to the victims, Ford demanded both their wallets and watches. The victims said they attempted to plead with Ford, explaining that their mother needed help and that they needed all the money they had. They said Ford responded threateningly, saying "I don't give a F***. I'll kill you. My mama is dead."

After the robbery the victims told police they followed Ford for a short while and called police to report the crime and give a description of his vehicle. Responding officer in the area spotted a vehicle matching their description and initiated a traffic stop.

Ford pulled his vehicle over, but then ran once he came to a stop. Officers, with the assistance of K9 units, located Ford at a residence in the 500 block of SE 34th St. Police surrounded the home and received permission from the home owner to enter.

Ford again tried to flee officers by retreating to a bathroom and climb out of the window. Officers again asked Ford to surrender, threatening to send in the K9 unit if he would not comply. Ford responded "F*** you! Come and get me!"

At this time officer stormed the bathroom and took Ford to the ground. He was handcuffed and placed under arrest.

Officers located one of the victim's wallets in an alleyway near the home. A Smith & Wesson JSP was found at SE 33rd and Byers. This is the weapon police believe was used during the robbery.

Both victims were taken to the residence where Ford was arrested and they positively identified him as the robber. Ford is charged with armed robbery and other outstanding traffic warrants.

Three other people were arrested at that residence for various crimes. Police arrested 54-year-old Sandra McClarty for harboring a fugitive and possession of drug paraphernalia. They arrested Shanice Easterling, 22, on an outstanding warrant for embezzlement. Atiana Jordan, 20, was arrested on several charges including false impersonation and numerous outstanding traffic warrants.
