Tulsa Police are investigating an armed robbery at a Tulsa restaurant near 51st and Yale. Investigators said a man forced the Red Lobster manager into an office around 10:30 Saturday night, just before closing.

The robber demanded the manager give him all the cash they had on hand, according to Tulsa Police.

Police records show the man told the manager, "I have a gun, and I will shoot you if you don't go in the office and give me the money."

Authorities said the robber left in a SUV that was waiting for him. 

Police said the suspect is described as a white or Native American male, about 6'1" and 170 to 200 pounds with dark, shoulder-length hair. He was wearing a dark ball cap, reading glasses, a black hooded sweatshirt and blue jeans.

They didn't have a description of the man waiting in the SUV but said it was a 2000 model dark - possibly maroon - vehicle that may have been a Chevy Tahoe.
