Police have arrested one suspect who's accused of robbing a couple and stealing their car outside an Oklahoma City mall.

Brett and Brandy Clark were shopping for Black Friday deals around 2:30 a.m. at Penn Square Mall. They returned to their car and Brett began loading their purchases into the vehicle as Brandy strapped in their 3-year-old son.

The couple noticed two men in the parking lot, and moments later the suspects approached them. According to the police report, one suspect pointed a gun at Brandy and said, "We don't want to cause a scene. We don't want your child to see this, but we want you wallets, purse, and cell phones."

Brandy took the couple's son from the car and Brett backed away. The two men took off in the car loaded with the Clarks' Black Friday deals.

Someone called Oklahoma City Police. Investigators obtained surveillance video of one suspect from JC Penney, and the Clarks positively identified him as the person who robbed them.

Police have now arrested 18-year-old Ryan Justin Alexander. The Clarks say he's the man who was holding the gun.

Alexander was booked into the Oklahoma County jail on a complaint of robbery with a firearm. The second suspect has not yet been found.
