Tulsa police arrested a convicted felon for armed robbery after a man was robbed outside the Blue Rose Café.  Police say the victim chased down the suspect who fired at him from the bed of a truck.

Police were called to 1924 Riverside Drive after a man said he was robbed as he sat outside the Brookside club in his vehicle.

One man approached the victim asking for change, according to an arrest report.

The first suspect reached into the car and grabbed the victim's money, then ran off to a two-tone Ford pickup truck. The robbery victim blocked the pickup with his vehicle until a second suspect in the truck pointed a firearm at him, the arresting officer states.

The victim backed away but followed the Ford until the second suspect fired at him from the back of the truck.

Police arrested Marquis Cornell Grubbs, 18. He was booked into Tulsa County Jail early Monday morning on several complaints including first degree robbery, shooting a firearm from a vehicle and possession of a firearm in commission of a felony. All are after former conviction of a felony.

The other man involved in the robbery is still at large.

Grubbs is being held on a $200,000 bond.
