OKLAHOMA CITY – Oklahoma City police are searching for three men wanted for an armed robbery in the metro.
The holdup took place at a gas station at NW 17th and Classen.
Police hope surveillance video of the crime will lead them to a trio of suspects.
Two crooks came into the store armed with a handgun and a knife.
A third suspect stood outside as a lookout.
No one got hurt during the crime but it was a scary moment for the victim.
“One of them shoved a gun to my head and they just asked me for the money. They said like, ‘We need money, we need money. Just hurry up, hurry up!’ They threw the bag on the table and they told me to put all the money inside the bag,” said the clerk who got robbed. “You can’t imagine how scary it was.”
That clerk asked we not show his face or use his name.
Last week three armed crooks held him up at gunpoint.
On video you can see the suspects make off with a bag full of cash, then run outside across the parking lot.
A customer outside tried to give chase but ultimately lost the three men.
The clerk says his only goal was surviving the stickup.
“I did what they said you know,” said the clerk. “It was about my life you know. I was alone at the time, no one was here. That’s why I did whatever they told me.”
“Obviously it was a very dangerous situation. The clerk handled it perfectly. We want to get these men captured because they’re obviously very dangerous,” said Oklahoma City police Sgt. Jennifer Wardlow.
Luckily, during the robbery one of the hooded men looked back toward the camera.
The clerk hopes that is enough to get the suspects caught before they rob again.
“I only wish the cops can catch them as soon as possible, that will be better for all of us,” said the victim.
Anyone with information on the suspects is asked to contact Crimestoppers or directly call police.
The number they wanted to give out is (405)316-4859.
