Police say three men crashed a stolen SUV into a Cash America pawn shop early Tuesday, then ran off.

The store is located in the 4900 block of South Peoria.

Officers say the crash is connected to a carjacking Monday night at Tulsa shopping center.

The front door of the pawn shop was severely damaged with shattered glass everywhere and some items were knocked over at the front of the store.

Police say surveillance video shows the driver strategically stop the Chevy Tahoe in front of the store, put it into reverse and back into the shop at a high rate of speed.

They say that video does not provide a very clear picture of the men, but it appears the three were wearing black hoodies and dark colored pants.

Officers say this is the SUV reported stolen from Promenade Mall late Monday after the victim said two men held her at knife point.

The three men were in the business for less than 15 seconds. Officers say it does not appear anything was stolen from the pawn shop.
