Tulsa Police are searching for the suspect in an attempted armed robbery of the McDonald's near 42nd and Yale just before 7 o'clock Tuesday morning.

Investigators say a man went through the drive through window and stuck a gun in the window attendant’s face. The employee shut the window and ducked down. Police say the suspect then drove away.

He's described as a white man in his 40's or 50's. Wearing a grey hooded sweatshirt and a dark hat.

A few minutes later, Tulsa Police say an armed man robbed the Texaco near 41st Street and Skelly Drive. Investigators say he did get away with an undisclosed amount of money.

Witnesses say the man drove off westbound on I-44 in a bluish-green mini-van.

The same man is suspected in both crimes. No one was hurt at either location.
