OKLAHOMA CITY -- Oklahoma City police are searching for a suspect who tricked a homeowner into letting him inside his house, then attacked and robbed the victim.

Police say the suspect went to the 2900 block of N.W. 14th Street on May 8.  The victim said he knew the suspect from around the neighborhood, so when he asked to use the bathroom the victim let him into his home.

Once inside the house, the suspect jumped the man from behind and started beating him.  The victim told police the suspect choked him, then hit him with a glass bottle and a fire extinguisher.  The victim eventually passed out.

After the beating, the suspect stole $500 to $600, a cell phone, a check book, credit cards, and the victim's car. 

The victim regained consciousness.  The suspect had bound him with wire from a speaker.  The victim freed himself and went to a neighbor's house to call 911.

Police have obtained photos of the suspect. They believe his first name is Daniel. He's described as Hispanic, 5 feet 7 inches tall, and approximately 160 pounds. Anyone with information about his identity or whereabouts should call Crime Stoppers (405) 235-7300.
