Tulsa police said a woman was robbed and forced to drive around Tulsa with a gun pointed to her head.

Police said the woman is home safe; she was dropped off on North Garrison.

The neighbor who lives across the street came outside and saw part of the abduction and robbery, but Beatrice Webb-Smith didn't realize what she was seeing.

"This really scares me now, right across the street," she said.

Police said a woman went to check on her elderly mother in the neighborhood on North Cincinnati and a young man jumped in her car, pointed a gun and said, "Give me all your money."

She did but then he demanded she drive him to her home. Police said they went inside and he held a gun to her head while he stole jewelry and money.

Police said when the woman turned off the alarm she hit the panic button, which notified police.

FOX23 spoke to the victim's husband off camera. He said the alarm company called him, too. He called his brother, who lives nearby, to check it out.

"I just happened to look up and saw him," said Webb-Smith.

She came outside and saw the robber open the garage.

"There were two people standing in the garage, a man and woman," she said.

Police said the robber pointed the gun at the brother and told him to give him the money out of his wallet.

Smith said she didn't see a gun and she thought everything was OK and went inside.

Police said the gunman made the woman get back in the car and as they drove away, the brother got in his car, followed them and called police.

They drove around awhile but ended up on North Garrison.

Police said he took her keys and her phone and threw them in the weeds. They said he had a 9mm handgun with pink on top.

Police tell FOX23 they're looking into other crimes where a gun with pink on it was used.

Outspoken :-/ they victimize the helpless (Dirty rotten scumbag cowardly lazy criminals) and the poor. One thing that they can't take from them is the love in their hearts for one another.
