Tulsa Police Look For Suspects In Recent Robberies
TULSA, OK -- Tulsa Police are asking for information in the robberies of two fast food restaurants and a Tulsa Walmart.
They suspect the same man may be responsible for the robberies of a Sonic on February 18 and of a Braums restaurant on February 16. At about 8:35 p.m., a man entered the Braums restaurant at 51st and Peoria, went behind the counter and fired a round into the ceiling from a silver revolver.
The suspect then ordered the manager to open the safe and place cash into a red duffle bag.
Police are looking for a black male, between 5'11" and 6' tall, 160 to 180 pounds and from 22 to 26 years of age. He was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, a black mask and expensive tennis shoes.
Police say there are similarities between this armed robbery and another that happened at Sonic, 4531 E. 51st Street, on February 18 at 8:40 p.m. A lone gunman entered that restaurant, fired a shot into the ceiling and fled with cash in a black duffle bag.
That gunman has about the same description – a 6' to 6'02" tall black male, 150-160 pounds in a gray hooded, khaki pants and white tennis shoes.
On the morning of February 16, Walmart located at 2019 E. 81 Street was robbed. The suspect stood in line at the Money Center in the Walmart, handed the clerk a note and then demanded cash. The man was armed with a handgun, the clerk told police.
The man fled the store and left in a teal or blue older style Ford Thunderbird type car. He was described as a black male, about 6' tall, 180 pounds wearing a black hoodie, black gloves, tan pants and tan work boots.
