OKLAHOMA CITY – Police are looking for a man who allegedly stalked three women who were out jogging on Saturday, running into two of them with his vehicle and driving away.

"I climbed up real quick and I started screaming, and I saw her climbing up and I think that's why I knew she was okay and moving,” Natalia Clark and Danielle Johnson said.

That was on Saturday and now on Thursday, Clark and Johnson are hearing that a few hours later a man in the same vehicle as the one that hit them started following another woman.

That time, the man pulled out a gun and demanded the woman get in his van.

"When the police officer called was talking to me he said do you think he was drunk or do you think he was on drugs, do you think this could have been a one time kind of slip of judgment and I was like I don't know but to hear that he did it again, a second time that's scary,” Clark said.

"This time he pulled up to a woman, she was out walking, he asked her for directions, she gave him directions but he kept following her in the van," Msgt. Gary Knight with Oklahoma City PD said.

Once she saw the gun, police say she ran to a home nearby.

"This is something we take very seriously and obviously we want to get this guy off the streets before he has the opportunity to do this again and maybe really hurt somebody,” Knight said.

Clark has a message for other women who enjoy running or walking outdoors.

"I hope this doesn't happen again but for other women if a predator does come Dani was really good about yelling and screaming, drawing attention and making noise. I think she was really good about running the opposite direction from where he was coming from,” Clark said.

The vehicle is described as a white dodge mini-van with a ladder rack on top and a Carrier logo on it.

Police say they are looking for a white male.
