Police: Thieves get away with $1 after negotiation with victim
OKLAHOMA CITY – Police are searching for two men who allegedly robbed a couple following an Oklahoma City Thunder game.
However, the pair of alleged thieves did not make off with everything they wanted.
On Jan. 2, officers were called to S.W. 4th St. and Robinson after a couple said they were robbed.
The pair had just left the Thunder game when two men approached them.
According to the police affidavit, one of the suspects said, “Give me your money,” and pulled out a pistol.
When the victims refused to hand over any money, the man demanded car keys.
However, the victim refused to give his keys to the alleged thief, who then demanded his cell phone.
According to the report, the victim only gave the suspect $1, his driver’s license and his Social Security card.
The suspect told the victim that if he “did not tell anyone, they would send his driver’s license back to him in the mail.”
However, the victim told police the address on his driver’s license was wrong, so he wasn’t going to get it back anyway.
The victim’s wife also told police the other alleged suspect searched her for money.
The first alleged suspect told the victims that the second man would hurt her if it was necessary.
But the second alleged suspect didn’t agree with the violence.
According to the report, “[Suspect 2] whispered into [victim’s] ear that he would not hurt her.”
Both men eventually fled the scene in a black SUV.
