Oklahoma County prosecutors filed multiple charges Monday against a prison escapee, his girlfriend and his father, court records show.

Kristopher Bud Johnson, 25, of Oklahoma City, is charged with seven felonies, including robbery with a firearm and aggravated eluding a police officer. He is accused of stealing a car at gunpoint and leading police on a high-speed chase after escaping prison custody in Union City.

Chelsea Allyce Price, 25, of Oklahoma City, and Curtis Leroy Johnson, 53, of Norman, are accused of harboring a fugitive, records show.

According to court documents, Price picked up Johnson near State Highway 152 and State Highway 81 after he escaped custody July 8 from a community level correctional facility. Four days later, Johnson used a pistol to steal a car and a cellphone from a man who gave the couple a ride, police reported.

When officers tried to pull Johnson over in the stolen car near Price's residence, he eluded them, police reported.

Police later returned to the residence in the 8200 block of Douglas Drive, where they executed a search warrant and took Johnson and Price into custody.

Curtis Johnson was seen working on a car with his son before the pursuit and driving around Price's residence in a suspicious manner afterward, police reported in the affidavit
