Elvis Velez, 27, admits he simply let his guard down and was too trusting. He's now determined to help others, but he also wants the robber caught.
Cooking out is a Saturday night tradition for Velez and his neighbors. While out cooking, Velez says he was approached by a guy who said he knew someone who lived there. But, on the way over, they stopped at a to get cash. They were in the suspect's vehicle leaving the store when Velez was caught off guard.
But he's also missing something else, the trust he'd gained in people after moving to Oklahoma from Miami, Florida a year ago. So, I never thought it would happen here.
I guess crime happens everywhere. He says he was a black male in his mid 20s with a "9" and a "zero" tattooed on his face.
He also had the name "Yolanda" tattooed on his neck and was driving a black Yukon. According to Velez, he's never had any problems with Craigslist, but in the future he'll never be alone when exchanging money or goods. Police are pretty confident they know the identity of the suspect.
