Police asking help identifying man accused in series of Oklahoma City robberies
OKLAHOMA CITY – Oklahoma City police are looking for a man wanted for multiple robberies.
Police are releasing surveillance video of the suspect in hopes of the public’s help identifying the man.
They said the suspect is connected to at least two crimes on N.W. 23rd St. and maybe more.
So far, the thief hasn’t been violent but police said he is still a danger to the community.
Walking into the small Goodwill donation center, the man strolled into the office and began to act unusual.
“He was acting erratic and shaking as if he was on something,” the victim said.
The victim, afraid of the suspect’s behavior, stood back as the man grabbed her purse and fled.
“I didn’t know what I was getting myself into if I would have gone at him, so I tried to keep my distance,” the victim said.
A couple of days before that crime and just two blocks away, police said the same man robbed another woman, stealing her keys and money.
“Nobody was injured in either robbery but when there’s somebody doing this repeatedly, it’s someone we want to get identified and get off the streets,” Oklahoma City police Master Sgt. Gary Knight said.
“This is a place that serves the community and tries to give back and he comes in and he’s taking,” the victim said. “It was awful.”
The victim at the Goodwill hopes someone helps identify the suspect, putting an end to his one-man crime spree.
“Whoever he is, I hope they catch him and he doesn’t do this to anyone else,” the victim said.
The suspect has not hurt his victims.
He appears to suffer from some sort of mental or physical problems.
Anyone with information on the suspect can contact Crimestoppers.
