Oklahoma City police are asking for help tracking down a man who assaulted a woman inside a Denny's restaurant and then shot up the store after he was forced to leave.

Police have released the surveillance video from inside the Denny's in Midwest City, hoping it will help identify the man they are looking for.

The video is a little grainy, but you can see the man and woman walking out. She then sits down, and he then lunges at her, knocks off her glasses, and pushes her down.

While she's struggling a worker and customer step in and pull him off of her. He fights back, but is finally forced to leave. Witnesses say he then went to his car, grabbed a gun and started shooting.

"Obviously there is a crowd of people sitting near the window at the side of the restaurant where he is actually shooting. They get up and run away very quickly. Fortunately, nobody was injured in this incident, but again this is a very dangerous man and we want to get him identified and get him taken off the streets," said Oklahoma City Police Sgt. Jennifer Wardlow.

Police say they did question the woman in the video, but they say she would not give them the man's real name. If you recognize the man, call Crime Stoppers at (405) 235-7300.
