Man robbed while helping change tire

ENID, Okla. — Garfield County Sheriff’s Office is searching for two vehicles involved in a reported armed robbery north of Enid before 9:15 a.m. Monday.

One vehicle is a red compact car with a doughnut tire on the left rear wheel and damage or complete loss to its rear bumper. It is being driven by a white woman in her 40s, about 5 feet, 2 inches  with blonde hair.

The second vehicle is described as a white Chevy flat-bed dually pickup with a winch or vehicle crane mounted to the rear edge of the bed. It is being driven by a white male in his 50s, about 6 feet, 3 inches, weighing about 200 pounds and with a bushy beard.

Sheriff Jerry Niles said a man stopped to change a tire on the red vehicle in about the 12,000 block of U.S. 81 when the white pickup pulled up from behind.

The driver of the white vehicle ordered the man into the bar ditch at gunpoint with a semi-automatic pistol and the man and woman ransacked his vehicle, Niles said. The man had to walk about a mile and a half before he reached a business so he could report the robbery.

Niles said both of the man’s cellphones were taken in the robbery.

The two vehicles fled the scene, first to the south and then to the east, Niles said.

“We’re following up on some leads,” the sheriff said.

Anyone who sees either vehicle should call 911, contact the sheriff’s office at (580) 237-0244 or contact their local law enforcement agency.

Those with information also may contact Garfield County Crime Stoppers at (580) 233-6233.
