OKLAHOMA CITY – Police are investigating after a man robbed a cell phone store on the city’s south side.

It happened at the Metro PCS near SW 44th and Blackwelder.

An employee says a man armed with a gun and wearing a mask came into the store and tried to open the cash register.

“Well, we were just busy with one of our customers and someone came in and they just said give me the money in the register,” said an employee.

The employee, who didn’t want to be identified for safety reasons, said he had a whole list of demands.

“He wanted to go into our safe and we said, ‘no, we don’t know the code.’ And he says ‘I know one of you guys has to have the code and we said, ‘no, our manager’s not here.’”

He the made off with several items in the store and no one was injured.

Minutes earlier, police say the same person tried to rob another cell phone store nearby, but couldn’t get inside because an employee locked him out.

Police say the suspect is a black male, wearing a black hoodie and a black bandanna over his face. He may be driving an older green sedan.
