Owasso Police are looking for a man who robbed the Church's Fried Chicken restaurant in the 11600 block of East 86th Street North Sunday afternoon.

Police say they got the call at about 4 p.m.

Police Captain Tracy Townsend says an employee was getting into her car to go to the bank to deposit the weekend's earnings.

Townsend says before she could close the car's door, a man placed a handgun to her face, told her not to scream and demanded she give him the money bag.

After she complied, Townsend said the man hit her in the face and ran into a nearby alley.

The woman suffered an injury to her chin but refused medical treatment.

She described the robber as a Hispanic or mixed race male, 25 to 30 years of age, 6-feet-2 to 6-feet-4, 130 to 140 pounds with dark eyes and hair. He was wearing a black, zippered, hooded sweatshirt and black leather gloves. The employee told officers the robber had severe acne across the bridge of his nose and cheeks.

Anyone who has seen this man is asked to call Owasso Police at 918-272-COPS.
