A Braum's clerk was lured to the parking lot of the store, where two former co-workers tried to rob him, according to an Oklahoma City police report.

Elijiah Hinton, 17, and Khalil Keys, 19, were arrested the next day on armed robbery complaints.

Police were called to the Braum's at 2001 NW 164 about 3:45 p.m. Tuesday and found Austin Levey, 18, distraught inside his car. Levey told police a man who used to work with him and owed him $60 asked to meet him at the parking lot to repay him.

Levey met Keys at the parking lot and Keys motioned for Levey to get into his car. When Levey got in, another person in the backseat pointed a black pistol at Levey and yelled at him to give up his phone, according to the report.

Levey told police he thought the man in the backseat was Hinton, another former co-worker.

Levey said he saw Hinton “cock the gun” before he pushed his head down toward the center console and hit the back of his head with the gun. Levey told police Hinton also punched him in the back of the head, according to the report.

Levey got out of the car and the robbers drove off, according to the report.

Hinton and Keys were booked into the Oklahoma County jail. Hinton was released on bail. Keys' bail is set at $20,000. has disabled the comments for this article.
