The investigation into the armed robbery of a Tulsa video store late Monday.

Tulsa Police say shortly after midnight, the assistant manager at the 15th and Lewis Blockbuster was getting ready to leave. A man hiding in his car put a knife to his throat. After forcing the victim back in the building to open the safe, the suspect left with some money. The victim then called for help.

Tulsa Police officer Mike Miller: "The clerk at the time could not come to the front door. His hands and feet where bound with duct tape, so we had to force entry into the building."

The suspect is identified as a Hispanic man. He was wearing a Blockbuster employee shirt but the victim did not recognize him.
