Oklahoma City police have released a video of a robber accused of stealing from four people at a northwest Oklahoma City gas station.

The four people told police they were robbed at gunpoint Friday at ConocoPhillips, 201 W Britton Road, according to the incident report.

Mark Johnson and Christopher Cope told police they were parked at fuel pumps about 3:45 a.m. trying to get gas and repair a head light. Johnson told the officer he was approached by a man, asking about their car and what was wrong.

Johnson told the officer the man pulled a pistol out of his pocket, showed it to him, and said “Give me all your money.” Johnson said he didn't have any cash and the man said he wanted Johnson's wallet. Cope said he went to Johnson's car and the man demanded Cope's wallet as well, according to the report.

The man approached the vehicle and asked for Kathryn Johnson and Tiffany Cope's purses, while showing them his pistol.

The man left with the purses and wallets, and drove away in a dark colored SUV, with chrome wheels and tag number 624JCC.

The robber is described as a black man in his early 20s, about 5 feet 8 inches tall, average weight and possibly with gold teeth.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 235-7300.
