TULSA, Oklahoma -

Police are looking for a man who robbed the Whataburger near 61st and Sheridan. Tulsa Police said a man with a pistol went into the restaurant around 4 a.m. Monday morning, May 1, and forced the employees into a freezer.

Officers said the man ran off with cash. No one was injured.

Sergeant Mark Ohnesorge said the man ran off and a police K9 tracked him for a little bit, but they weren't able to take him into custody.

"There have been other Whataburgers robbed in the last few weeks, so we're going to look in to see if it has any relation," he said.

No one was injured.
