TULSA, Oklahoma -- Two robberies late Tuesday and early Wednesday have Tulsa Police looking for at least four suspects. 

At the first incident, a woman fights off two attackers who police believe tried to abduct her while pumping gas at a Kwik Stop near 4th and Yale late Tuesday.

The incident happened just after 10:30 p.m.

The gas station itself was closed and she was using a credit card to pay for the gas at the pump. Two men came up to her, but police say she fought back and they eventually gave up and drove off.

She was not hurt.

A short time later, two men rob an employee at a Tulsa Sonic restaurant at 31st and Sheridan just after midnight.

Tulsa Police say one of the men had a gun and approached two female workers just after closing around 12:20 a.m.

The men grabbed one woman's purse and ran off.

The women went to a nearby QuikTrip and called police.

Neither woman was injured.
