A man armed with a knife took $120 in cash from the victim and fled on foot from an apartment complex near the University of Central Oklahoma, an officer stated in an incident report.
During the afternoon of Feb. 15, Edmond Police Officer Jonathan Vincent was dispatched to 1600 Kickingbird Road in reference to an armed robbery, according to Vincent’s report released Friday. He spoke to the victim while other officers searched for the suspect.
Vincent stated the victim was in the parking lot at the apartment complex, getting items out of his vehicle, when he turned around and saw the suspect standing behind him. The suspect, who never said or did anything to announce his presence, was just standing there, the victim stated.
When the victim asked if he could help him, the suspect asked for his money, then for his wallet, Vincent stated in his report. The victim saw the suspect was holding a knife and gave him his wallet, the report stated.
The suspect allegedly took all the cash out of the wallet, threw the wallet down on the ground and left heading south out of the complex. Vincent stated the victim said the suspect was holding the knife, which appeared to be a folding pocket knife with a black blade, about waist high.
In the report, the suspect is described as being a white male with a medium build about 6-feet 1-inches tall having shoulder-length brown hair and facial hair stubble. The victim said the suspect had an extremely unkempt appearance like a homeless person, and he could smell alcohol emanating from him, Vincent stated.
