Lawton Police Investigate Four Thursday Robberies

Lawton, Oklahoma – Lawton Police are investigating four robberies that occurred on Thursday, two in the late night and two in the early morning.

Investigators have a person of interest in custody for at least one of the late night crimes.

The first robbery occurred around 12:20 a.m. Thursday morning. Police say they were called to Pizza Time after one of their employees said two black men and a Hispanic woman robbed her at gunpoint.

The employee told police she had taken three pizzas to the 2200 block of Northwest Hoover Avenue when the three suspects waived her down. When she got out of her vehicle, one of the men pointed a black handgun at her and said, “Give me everything that you have.” The man took the three pizzas, her cell phone, money and ID cards.

All three suspects left on foot. The victim drove to Pizza Time and called 911.

Police say they were called to a second robbery at the 4800 block of Northwest Lindy Avenue around 4:00 a.m. Thursday when a man who worked for the newspaper told police he had been robbed.

The victim told police he was parked on the 4600 block of Northwest Ozmun Avenue while he rolled newspapers. He went on to tell police that a black male with a silver handgun asked if he was following him, before demanding all of his money.

The victim gave the man his debit card, and the suspect left.

The third robbery occurred around 9:30 p.m. Thursday night after employees and customers at the Kimono Steak & Sushi Bar located on 82nd Street told dispatchers a black male robbed the restaurant at gunpoint.

However, a person of interest for this robbery was in custody Friday morning according to LPD.

Police say one of the victims had a cell phone stolen which had a GPS tracker app. Officers used another phone to track the stolen phone which led officers to the 1800 block of Northwest 82nd Street. The suspect was located outside of this address and was detained.

Three victims positively identified Javaughn Fox as the individual that robbed the restaurant. Fox was placed under arrest for First Degree Robbery and was transported to the Lawton City Jail without incident.

About an hour after the third robbery, officers were called to the Stripes convenience store at Sheridan and Lincoln Avenue. A clerk told them three men with bandannas on their faces came into the business and robbed her at gunpoint before taking off.

Nobody was hurt during the robberies.
