What started as a seemingly helpful act from a good Samaritan ended with a driver being forced out of his car at gun point.

"[The alleged victim] reported that he had locked his keys in his vehicle at KFC and a male subject, not known to him, asked if he needed help," according to records filed by Rogers County Sheriff's Office, who added that the unknown man was later identified as Brandon Browning, 26.

"The mane helped [the alleged victim] get in his vehicle, then asked for a ride."

He agreed, and Browning got in the vehicle.

They reached the intersection of 435 Road and 4160 Road and Browning pulled a small handgun from his waistband and pointed it at his head. Browning said 'this is the end of the road for you,' and ordered the driver out of the vehicle but told him to leave his cell phone and money in the seat.

RCSO investigators were told Browning attempted to run the man over, who was now in the ditch alongside the road, before fleeing the scene.

It was through surveillance cameras and a photo lineup that investigators were able to determine Browning's identity.

"Browning was located in Miami, Okla., visiting his girlfriend in the hospital," RCSO said, adding that he was taken into custody there and later admitted to the robbery.

"The firearm was later identified as a BB/pellet gun," RCSO said. "Browning has an extensive criminal history with previous firearm charges. He is also on Federal Pretrial Release awaiting sentencing next month.

He was arrested by RCSO on felony allegations of first degree robbery by force or fear, and assault with intent to kill but charges have not yet been filed by the Rogers County District Attorney's Office.
