Man pleads with gunmen after tied up, robbed


OKLAHOMA CITY — An Oklahoma City Jeweler is warning others to be aware and on guard after he was held at gunpoint, tied up and robbed early Monday morning.

The two gunmen are still on the loose.

It happened in the 6300 block of S. Broadway just before 2 a.m.

The victim said he was walking into his house, carrying his groceries when two men jumped up behind him and held him a gunpoint.

With two guns at his head, Brian Robinson said he prayed for his life and for the men holding him up. 

Robinson said the men pushed him inside and zip tied his hands and feet.

“I have a beautiful daughter I have to take care of, I begged them not to kill me,” Robinson said.

He said the men kept repeating what they were after, jewelry and money.

A 31-year wholesale jeweler, he wonders if that’s why the men targeted him.

The men ransacked his home and truck and got away with his jewelry, money and gun.

Before leaving, the attackers gave Robinson a knife to cut himself free.

He ran next door and called police who searched for any evidence  that could lead to the  gunmen.

“I didn’t know if they were going to kill me or not and that uncertainty is unnerving,” Robinson said. “That’s the only way I can describe, it’s utterly unnerving.”

Feelings he hopes others avoid by never letting down their guard.

If  you have information that could lead police to possible suspects, call Crime Stoppers at (405) 235-7300.
