Robbery Suspect Leaves Empty-Handed, Salutes Clerk's Courage

Posted: Updated:

Tulsa Police detectives are working to identify a suspect involved in an attempted armed robbery at a Kum and Go around midnight, Dec. 30, 2012.

A white male suspect implied to the attendant that he had a gun and demanded money from the Kum and Go  at 14495 E. 51st Street, according to Tulsa Police Public Information Officer, Leland Ashley. The clerk refused to hand over any money.

"We always suggest that your life is probably more important than material things," Ashley said, "Although this individual did not show a weapon, but it is very possible that he did have a weapon."

What surprised police officers was not that the Kum and Go attendant refused to hand over money, but what the suspect told the clerk. The armed suspect told the clerk, "I'm not going to do this because you have courage and I like you."

"We've had individuals comes in and attempt robberies sort of like this, but nothing to the point where individual admired the attendants courage for not handing over the money and then simply walks out," Ashley said, "This is kind of new to us."

Ashley recommends for people in this type of situation to comply with demands and give a good description of the suspect to police.
