TULSA, Okla. (KTUL) — Tulsa police have arrested a man accused of robbing a convenience store after officers responded to his home for calls of domestic violence.
Officers said on Jan. 8, a man who was later identified as Anthony Inkton, walked into a convenience store near 31st Street and Sheridan and asked a clerk about a box of cigarettes.
Inkton then reportedly told the clerk that it was a "stick up," then said, "If you want to live your life and not get hurt, give me all your money."
Authorities said Inkton also implied that he had a weapon.
The clerk complied and Inkton ran out of the store shortly after.
After reviewing surveillance video, detectives determined it was Inkton who was seen leaving the store in a Honda with a woman.
On Monday, officers responded to a home in east Tulsa for calls of domestic violence.
The incident involved Inkton and the woman seen leaving the convenience store with him on the day of the robbery.
Investigators questioning Inkton said he admitted to committing the robbery.
Inkton was arrested for 1st degree robbery and has been booked into the Tulsa County Jail on a $25,000 bond.
