OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla. -- A metro woman is left scared and wary after two people caught on surveillance video appear to walk into her place of work, and steal her belongings right from her desk.

The victim is asking for your help to identify the man and woman in the tape.

"I feel violated," Sarah Finn said.

It was 12:30 p.m. Wednesday at Sassy Looks Salon & Boutique when the unexpected happened.

"I walked in, put my jacket and my purse on my desk back there," Finn said.

She was working behind closed doors for about 10 minutes as she rushed to spray tan one of her clients. When she came out, her belongings were gone.

"A woman came in, came around the chair, saw my cell phone, grabbed my cell, put in her jacket and left," Finn said.

About a minute after the woman left, surveillance video shows a man come in, appearing to be on a mission.

"Kind of looks around, goes directly to my purse and my jacket, takes both and goes out," Finn said.

The duo got away with Finn's credit cards, check book, cash, and more.

Salon manager, Linda Westfall is thankful for the salon's working security cameras.

"I just want them to get caught, I want to do my part and help them get caught," Westfall said.

As for Finn, she hopes people learn a lesson from her mistake.

"I hope that people will be more aware. Don't think for a few minutes that somebody just can't take your stuff, don't leave it out, just put it up."

After the man and woman on tape left the salon, credit card records show they purchased items at a nearby Walgreen's, then tried to write a check at Ace Hardware for more than $900.

A report has been filed. If you recognize the duo in the security footage, please call Oklahoma City Police right away.
