EDMOND, Okla. - A woman is in custody and a man is on the run after an armed robbery at a metro Dollar General turned into a pursuit.

At around 9 p.m. Saturday, there was an armed robbery at the Dollar General near Waterloo and Coltrane.

Officials say during the robbery, a store clerk had her purse and car stolen.

A customer that was inside the store at the time of the robbery told News 4 the suspect pointed a gun at him and the clerk.

"Then he went behind the counter, and he came out with her purse.  That's when I saw one of the workers run after him," Zac Gilbert said. "Then we were probably standing no closer than me and you are right now, he pulled the gun on her and was like, 'don’t come any closer or I'll shoot.'"

The suspects then led the Logan County Sheriff's Office and Oklahoma Highway Patrol on a short pursuit before wrecking near I-35 and Seward Road.

According to the Oklahoma County Sheriff's Office, 23-year-old Alexis Nugent was taken into custody. Officials are now looking for 30-year-old Lawrence Lewis.

The sheriff's office says if you have any information, call 911.
