    TULSA, Okla. - Quick facts:

    • Two men reportedly robbed an east Tulsa gas station.
    • One of the men reportedly took an employee's car.
    • An investigation is underway.


    Police are searching for suspects after someone robbed an east Tulsa gas station and took off with the employee's car, but he says he was able to save his shoes.

    The incident happened near 51st and 145th East Avenue Sunday morning.

    Police say two suspects entered the Kum & Go there through the back door, pulled guns and demanded access to the safe. Officers say the employee inside was unable to access the safe, and the suspects took money from the register, cigars and cigarettes.

    One suspect fled on foot, but the other reportedly stole the employee's car.

    The employee said the car uses a breathalyzer to start, and the suspects won't be able to use it once they turn it off. He said they also got away with an iPhone that was in the car, but he was able to take out a pair of designer shoes before they took off.

    "I was like, 'You can have the car, bro, but I'm keeping my Lebron's,'" the man said.

    Police say one of the suspects is a 6'1", 190-pound, black male with facial hair and a pea coat. The second is a 6'3", 170-pound, black male with facial hair and a grey hoodie with a green hood.
