TULSA, OK -- Tulsa Police are looking for a man who they say punched a female clerk at a QuikTrip early Thursday morning. 

The incident happened at the QuikTrip at 31st and 129th East Avenue around 3 a.m. 

Police say the man, who was in his 40's, had been in the store for about an hour talking with the clerk when he followed her into a storage room and punched her in the face twice. 

She was then locked in the storage room. 

Another customer told police officers the man took several cartons of cigarettes before fleeing the store and jumping into an older model Chevy Malibu.
