Police are looking for a man who robbed a Tulsa convenience store with a gun Thursday night, then rode off on a bicycle.

Robbery detectives said they believe it's the same man suspected of robbing the QuikTrip at 4700 South Yale on September 5.

Officers were called to the QuikTrip at 51st and Sheridan at about 11:45 p.m. Thursday night. They said the man walked in, pulled a gun and demanded money from the cash registers.
