(Scroll down for video) A bizarre incident was caught on video.
A teenager was seen walking around while sucking a pacifier before robbing a man at gunpoint.
Police in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, are asking the public to help them identify the suspect, who has been nicknamed binky bandit.
The suspect, who is believed to be about 18 years old, is wanted for carjacking and stealing a man’s wallet in the parking lot of a convenience store around 8:00 p.m. on
Police also believe that the teen may be on drugs, and therefore used the pacifier. The pacifier has become a recent phenomenon with teens who take drugs.
Apparently, some drugs cause the user to have the urge to chew on something. For some reason, a pacifier became the choice for young people.
The suspect approached the victim in the parking lot and asked him a few questions before pulling out a .38 caliber pistol.
He demanded his wallet and vehicle, a two-door red 1997 Grand Prix.
The victim did not resist and gave the suspect what he demanded. The teen took the possessions and fled.
A surveillance camera in the Circle L store captured a clear image of the young man, who police say has a slender build and about 5 feet 10 inches tall.
