STILLWATER, Okla. — Stillwater police are investigating an armed robbery that occurred at the Git N Gallup on 1325 N. Perkins Rd.

According to police, the suspect was described as a black male wearing a black shirt and a Band-Aid on his nose. The suspect entered the store Wednesday at approximately 3:18 p.m., produced a firearm, took an undetermined amount of cash and fled on foot eastbound on Redbud Drive. No one was injured.

Stillwater Police Capt. Randy Dickerson said there is a high likelihood the robbery is linked with two others.

On Jan. 25, a suspect approached a clerk at Cowboy Corner on Duck Street with a semi-automatic handgun tucked in his waistband. He took an undetermined amount of cash.

 Police described the suspect as a 5-foot, 10-inch black male wearing a black pea coat, tight-fitting beanie hat and gloves.

His hair was described as straight and long with curly tips. The front portion of his hair was black with streaks that appeared to have been bleached, giving it a reddish color.

On Jan. 17, an armed suspect robbed Approved Cash in the 700 block of East McElroy Road. He took an undetermined amount of cash and a clerk’s sliver Honda. The car was later recovered empty. The suspect was described as a black male in his 20s or 30s wearing a beanie and a puffy black jacket.
