LAWTON, OK (KSWO) –Lawton Police arrested one of the two men involved in an armed robbery early Thursday morning.

Three people were at a home on the 1200 block of Northwest Taylor when two armed men kicked in the door and demanded all of the drugs and money in the home. One person in the home told them they didn’t have either of those things. The two men then demanded all of their money and cell phones. The two men ran from the home after getting their money and phones. The three people that were staying at the home decided to go somewhere safer for the night.

After the three left the home, police patrolled the area looking for the two armed men from the robbery when they were back to the home because a neighbor called police and said the same men broke into the home a second time. One of the suspects was commanded to stay put, but he decided to run behind the home and jump two fences.

The second suspect, Dominique McKnight, was still in the home. Police say he was “in a bathroom closet with a handgun within arms reach.”

McKnight was detained and one of the victim’s from the robbery was able to positively ID him and the gun.

The gun was stolen and officers noticed the serial number was partially filed off.

McKnight was arrested for robbery, second-degree burglary, possession of stolen property, possession of a firearm with a removed serial number, possession of a firearm as a felon and during the commission of a felony.
