A man who stopped his car to help a woman was robbed by her and an accomplice, Oklahoma City police said Tuesday.

The victim, 27, was driving south about 2:40 a.m. Saturday on the Interstate 35 Service Road near SE 29 when he saw a woman waving her hands, according to a police report.

He stopped and asked if she needed help, police said. A man appeared and grabbed the passenger side door, pointing a gun at the driver and demanding money.

The victim threw a $20 bill toward his robber and said that's all he had.

The male robber next told the victim to get out of the car. When the victim refused, the robber moved to the front of the vehicle and fired a shot into the hood.

The victim sped off and called 911, police said.

Police picked up a man and woman walking in the 3500 block of the service road a short time later.

The man had a gun and a $20 bill, police said.

Jeffrey Joaquin Townley, 29, was arrested on complaints of robbery with a firearm, pointing a firearm and possession of a firearm.

Cheyenne Blue McDaniels, 20, was arrested on a complaint of robbery with a firearm.
