Police look for couple who robbed Oklahoma City women of prescription medicine
Police have released photos showing a man wanted in connection with two robberies where prescription medicine was taken from women in southwest Oklahoma City.
Police are looking for two people after a woman unsuccessfully tried to fight off a robber who took her prescription medicine outside Integris Southwest Medical Center and drove off with a female accomplice.
The couple also are suspected in a similar robbery at a pharmacy in southwest Oklahoma City.
The woman was leaving the hospital's pharmacy about 4:40 p.m. Wednesday when a man with a cigarette in his mouth asked for a light. As the woman reached into her pocket with one hand, the man snatched the bag with her prescription painkillers out of the other hand.
The woman chased the robber, jumping on his back and exchanging punches before he got into a sport utility vehicle with a woman and drove off.
On July 13, a woman was leaving a pharmacy at 1044 SW 44 when a man approached her in the parking lot about 4:30 p.m. The man wrestled the woman for her bag that had prescription painkillers and anxiety medication in it before getting into an SUV with a woman and driving away.
The vehicle is a newer model silver SUV with aluminum wheels and black recessed rims and tinted windows.
Police released photos of the male suspect from a surveillance video. He is a white man about 5 feet 10 inches tall and 260 pounds with a shaved hair style. Anyone with information about the robbers can call Crime Stoppers at 235-7300.
