OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) – A man is recovering after being robbed and beaten in Bricktown early Monday morning.
“I just had this odd feeling, like something’s not right,” Steven McGee told KFOR.
An evening at the Pink Parrot Cantina ended violently down the road at Reno and Mickey Mantle early Monday morning, where McGee was waiting for an Uber.
“These guys, they feel like they’re up to no good, and I just stopped right there in my tracks,” he said.
According to the police report, McGee told officers who responded that five men surrounded him and one of them walked behind him, walked over to his right side and then “threw a sucker punch at him with a closed fist.”
“The five guys systematically jumped me. One guy grabbed my left leg, pulled it towards him. The other guy grabbed my right leg, pulled it towards him. Then they pretty much held me down, as they continued to pummel me. You know kicked me in the head, punched me in the head, punched me in the face,” McGee said.
He said the suspects then robbed him, getting off with his backpack containing his wallet, cell phone, driver’s license and SSN card.
“Things are just getting dangerous out here,” he said. “People are getting out of hand.”
Just 48 hours earlier, another assault happened in the area that KFOR reported on Monday.
Twenty-three-year-old Keri Booth told KFOR she was sexually assaulted and then beaten while leaving the night club Pretty Please.
“The officer that I spoke to, he said downtown in general, stuff like this rarely happens,” Booth said.
Both Booth and McGee wanted to share their stories on KFOR, hoping it might lead to an arrest because their attackers are still out there.
“There’s a lot going on, you know, with COVID-19,” McGee said. “To have people out there robbing innocent people and beating them up and causing harm, I mean it’s just not the thing to do.”
So far, no arrests have been made.
