Conoco robbery hopes to be solved using surveillance footage
OKLAHOMA CITY — Just before 4:00 Friday morning two couples, headed on a road trip, stopped at a Conoco in the 200 block of West Britton. They were just grabbing gas and fixing a headlight. They say a black male approached them and asked what was wrong and then quickly showed them a pocket pistol and said, “Give me all your money.”
“I immediately turned around and walked away to get the keys out of the ignition of the car, shut the car door, and lock my sister and my wife in,” said one victim.
The suspect, still on the lose, has all of their information; so the victims wanted to be sure their identities stayed concealed.
“And then he robbed my brother in law, forced my sister and wife to open the door. Took their wallets and then came to me and asked me for mine,” said the victim. “I felt like there was no real threat. That he just wanted our wallets.”
The victims say the whole ordeal was quick. He got what he wanted and left, but it was 48 hours before they could finally get some rest.
“Really, just being together the rest of the weekend, it was really nice to kind of decompress from the situation,” said the victim.
The suspect got away with wallets, purses and an Iphone, but Oklahoma City Police are thanking the suspect for walking into the convenience store.
“[There is] a very clear picture of this man as he walks into the business,” said Sgt. Jennifer Wardlow. “So we’re confident that someone will recognize him and be able to help us solve this case.”
The victims are very anxious waiting for that arrest, but are confident they will get justice.
“Honestly, it really went as well as it could have,” said the victim. “I mean everyone acted perfectly. Everyone was calm and collected and gave them what they wanted. I feel like there were so many different scenarios that could have played out at any given time that just didn’t.”
Oklahoma City Police are looking for a black male in his early twenties, medium build with gold teeth. The vehicle he fled in is described as a dark colored SUV, with chrome wheels and the tag number 642-JCC.
