For the second time in two weeks a convenience store clerk in North Tulsa gets robbed by the same man.

The latest robbery at the QuikTrip at Admiral and Harvard happened at 3 a.m. Wednesday.

Like the first robbery on July 31, 2012, a man entered the store wearing some sort of mask with a pillow over his arm.

Tulsa Police believe the man used the pillow to make it appear as though he was hiding a gun.

As the robber demanded money, officers say the clerk recognized the man as the same person who came to the store two weeks ago.

After getting cash from the clerk, the man ran out of the QuikTrip to the west.

The man is described as a black male, 29 to 30 years of age, 5-feet-10 to 6-feet-1, wearing a dark t-shirt, black shorts, and flip-flops.

Tulsa Police are still trying to determine if the man had a getaway vehicle parked nearby.
