Tulsa police searching for robbery suspect, say man entered store with socks on his hands

TULSA - An overnight gas station robbery leaves Tulsa police searching for a suspect.

It happened around 1:30 a.m. at Phillips 66 at 51st and Yale.

Officers say a man went in, demanded money, saying he had a gun but he never showed it.

Police say it wasn't a typical robbery.

"He came in and on one hand he had a rainbow sock and on the other he had a gray sock," said Cpl. Jerrod Hart. "He had some big purple glasses and I guess because of his appearance, the clerk thought he was joking with him."

An employee at a nearby Taco Bell claimed the suspect left the scene on a bike.

Police hope to find the suspect with the gas station's surveillance video.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (918) 596-COPS.
