For the second Saturday in a row, two men rob a Tulsa Braums store at gunpoint just as the store opens for business for the day.  

Shortly before 6:20 a.m. Tulsa Police were dispatched to the Braums in the 7100 block of East Admiral.

Employees told officers that just after they opened the store, two men armed with handguns entered and demanded money.

Tulsa Police say employees were unable to open the store's safe but did give the robbers money from the store's cash registers.

There were 6 customers in the store at the time, but police say no one was hurt.

On September 1st, Tulsa Police say two men, who matched the description of this Saturday's robbery, robbed the Braums at 18th and Sheridan.

That time, the two men forced a store employee at gunpoint to open the store. After getting money, the pair ran into a nearby parking lot.

Police say in both robberies, the two black males in their late teens or early 20's and wearing masks ran away on foot, but officers feel the pair had a vehicle parked nearby.

Anyone with information about either robbery is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 918-596-COPS.
