TULSA, Okla. - Tulsa police are said to be looking for a man who reportedly robbed a Storey Wrecker driver late Saturday night in north Tulsa.

Sgt. Wes Phelps told FOX23 that the incident occurred in the 300 block of E. 57th St. North just around 10 p.m. 

Phelps said the driver of the wrecker had just picked up a vehicle and was sitting in his truck when a man wearing a red bandanna and armed with a 12-gauge shotgun approached him.

The suspect busted out the driver side window, demanded money and took off, Phelps said.

The victim tried to grab the shotgun from the suspect, but was not successful.

The suspect then fled the scene, Phelps said. 

The driver was treated at the scene for a minor hand wound.

Ive never met a wrecker driver that didnt have a loaded gun on the seat next to him. Sure it's illegal but police look the other way for tow trucks.

Karlschnotdobber #8 ^]] It's good to see though that you agree that Storey Wrecker IS robbing the public. Otherwise you would never have said, "Two wrongs don't make a right."

Karlschnotter #8 ^]]. Evidently scared of the truth. Make it up as you go??? I just simply stated a fact and you infer/intuit it to your own right to slander those who tell the truth. Remember you made the statement about right and wrong not I.
