TULSA – The search continues for a man wanted for armed robbery and kidnapping.

Tulsa police are asking anyone with information regarding the whereabouts of Earl Tyler, 18, to call authorities.

Tyler is wanted out of Tulsa Co. for robbery with a firearm, first degree burglary and kidnapping. TPD is offering a reward for anyone who comes forward or call 918.596.COPS.

He is described as a black male, 5-foot 9 and around 182 pounds with black hair and brown eyes.

Tulsa police say Tyler was involved in an armed robbery where he and two other suspects held two victims at gunpoint. The victims told police that they were forced to give the suspects their personal belongings or they would be shot or kidnapped.

The booking report shows that one of the suspects wrapped a towel around one of the victim’s head in a chokehold and said they were going to take “him to Muskogee against his will.”

Besides Tyler, another suspect involved was recently taken into custody. Tulsa police were able to identify and arrest Jajuan Dennis, pictured below.

Investigators are still trying to identify the third suspect.
