TULSA, OK -- Three people are in custody and one man remains at large following the armed robbery of an east Tulsa massage parlor early Saturday morning. 

Lance Harris, 24, and Dexter Harris, 22, were arrested on complaints of armed robbery and resisting arrest. Tina Kasalika, 27, was arrested on a complaint of armed robbery.

The incident happened at about 12:30 a.m. at Lavendar's Day Spa, 10915 E. 31st St. A Tulsa Police Department officer on patrol saw three men running out of the spa and went to investigate. 

Day Spa employees called in at about the same time to report that three men and one woman worked together to steal money and some merchandise from the store. 

The woman, identified as Tina Kasalika, went in and asked employees about massages, wanting to look around. The employees told police they thought that was very strange.  When Kasalika had all of the workers in the back room, the three men came through the door demanding money. 

One of men threw a television set, and two of the victims were hit by the men. There were two guns and either a knife or a crowbar used as weapons, according to on-scene reports. 

The robbers left with about $600 in cash. The woman was arrested at the scene but the three men ran off. Using a canine officer, police tracked the suspects over to The Garnett Assembly of God Church, but lost the track at the edge of the building. 

A police helicopter searched the area for a while and eventually spotted two men on the roof of the church. Officers surrounded the men and captured them after the suspects crashed  though a second floor window and into the air duct of the church. 

The two men were eventually caught in the church and taken into custody. One of them was treated at the OSU Medical Center for a dog bite and some cuts from the glass. 

Police continue to search for the third man. Anyone with information about the crime is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 596-COPS.
