An armed robber was left injured and naked after threatening a woman outside a hair salon, according to police reports on Oklahoma.

Oklahoma City Police said that several victims fought back against an armed suspect with a gun, leaving the man naked and wounded outside a beauty salon.

Employees told police that they were extremely busy due to the holidays, and they were working late at the “Head Honchos,” which is located near N.E. 36th Street and Lottie.

Just after midnight, a woman said that a suspect identified as 23-year-old Corneilyus Howeth, jumped into her car and pointed a gun at her.

The victim managed to call her brother, who was inside the salon just a few feet away. He rushed outside to help, but said that Howeth pointed the gun at him so he went back into the salon.

The victims said that Howeth demanded all her money and asked for someone who was not there.

A few moments later, another person entered the salon. Witnesses said that Howeth again pointing the gun at the newcomer, and that’s when one of the victims approached the suspect.

According to the police report, the two fought over the gun. Howeth hit the victim with a table leg, and another person in the room jumped into the fight to help subdue Howeth. The victims told police that they managed to take the weapon away. They then stripped him naked and pushed him outside the salon before calling the police.

The victims were not seriously injured. Howeth sustained some minor injuries and was taken to a hospital for treatment. He was booked into the Oklahoma County jail for robbery with a firearm.
