Police arrest man who stole someone's gun and pointed it at his wife
TULSA, Okla. (KTUL) —
Tulsa police arrested a man early Friday after a robbery at the Extended Stay near 41st and Memorial.
Around 12:45 a.m., officers responded to the strong armed robbery.
They found out Gabriel Edmonds was staying at the hotel with his wife. Shortly before officers were called to the scene, Edmonds' girlfriend came to the hotel and started arguing with him.
His girlfriend left, driving around the parking lot. Edmonds' wife barricaded herself in the hotel room.
Edmonds grabbed a tire iron from a pickup truck in the parking lot. He broke windows out to a room two doors down, where a random guy was staying.
The man in the room grabbed a pistol and opened the door. Edmonds forced his way inside the room and fought with the man for control of the gun. He took the pistol from the man and left the room.
Edmonds' wife ran out of the room and hid behind her vehicle in the parking lot. He pointed the gun at her before going back into their hotel room.
Edmonds was arrested and is facing a first degree burglary and pointing a deadly weapon charge.
