Police say a security guard was injured after he tried to stop a man who stole beer from a midtown Tulsa convenience store late Tuesday.

Officers said the theft of a case of beer happened at the QuikTrip at 15th and Denver at 11:15 p.m.

Police said the guard followed the suspect who had grabbed the beer as he ran to a car parked outside the store.  They said the guard tried to reach in and get the beer from the front seat, but the suspect backed up, driving over the guard's foot.

Police said the security guard refused medical treatment and the suspect's car was last seen driving towards the Broken Arrow Expressway.
