For the third day in a row, police responded to an armed robbery at a Tulsa-area QuikTrip.
Two teens were taken into custody Wednesday morning after the QuikTrip on 61st Street, just west of Memorial, was robbed.
That armed robbery followed two QuikTrips having been robbed 30 minutes apart Tuesday morning. Both incidents involved two men, one of whom brandished a knife during each robbery.
And to start the week, two men armed with a knife and their faces covered demanded cash from the QuikTrip at 21st and Memorial Monday.
No one was injured in any of those incidents.
We went through the 2 Works for You archives and found at least 17 incidents in 2016 involving an armed robbery, assault, stabbing, shooting or some other offense at area QuikTrips. We found at least eight incidents in 2015, including one in which an 18-year-old was shot and killed in a QuikTrip parking lot.
In most of the cases we found, no one was injured. However, one clerk was shot while taking out the trash, another was assaulted by a man while a woman attempted to steal something, and a clerk punched a customer who tried to punch him first.
In a couple of cases, customers were targeted. A man was robbed at knifepoint after using a QuikTrip ATM. Two teen girls were locked inside the women's restroom and held at knifepoint. The girls escaped but not before giving up a pair of expensive sandals.
We also found four nights since March 2015 in which multiple QuikTrips were targeted, and two stores that have been locations of violence twice. Those stores are located at 4795 South Yale and 3108 South 129th East Avenue.
This interactive map shows the location of the incidents we found. Below the map is a list of the incidents with links to the stories we reported.
