The robberies happened in a flash, but the thief didn't know he was caught on camera. He robbed the store while Misti Colby was getting ready to close.

Colby told News 9 one last customer walked in asking for chips. The man that walked in behind him wanted cash. After demanding money, the thief got aggressive.

"I tried to push our panic button, but it got stuck so then he decided he wanted to put the gun in my face," Colby said.

Colby refused to give the man the money out of the cash drawer, so the thief took the entire register. Yet while staring at the barrel of a gun, she wasn't scared, but mad.

"I just hope the cop finds him and he gets locked up," she said.

Both robberies happened between 9 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. at Circle K on Main and at Sooner Food Market in Norman. The clerks were alone at the time of the robberies.

Nobody was hurt, but police urge not to resist robbers but value human life.
