    TULSA, Okla. - Tulsa police have arrested a suspect thief who they say put a gun to a loss prevention officer’s head.

    A loss prevention officer at the Kohl’s near 71st and Garnett stopped a man when they saw him trying to steal a speaker Monday afternoon, according to police.

    The loss prevention officer reportedly took the suspect to the loss prevention office, where police say the suspect pulled out a handgun and pointed it at the employee.

    Police say the suspect then ran out of the office and out the door, where they say he got into a car and drove away.

    Police say the employee was injured trying to get out of the office, but other than that he was OK.

    Officers have arrested Christopher Casto in connection to the incident.

    Police say the suspect will face charges of grand larceny and pointing a deadly weapon.

    "Thank you for contacting Kohl’s. A police investigation is under way into this matter. We are cooperating with the authorities leading the investigation and are referring all media inquiries to police."
