Tulsa police have identified a "person of interest" in an attempted robbery at a fast-food restaurant Saturday.
Authorities are seeking Darell Mitchell, 24, who is described as black, 6 feet tall and 170 pounds with black hair and brown eyes.
A warrant for Mitchell's arrest already had been issued for alleged failure to pay court costs and/or fines after pleading guilty to public intoxication in 2008.
Police said a man confronted a carhop at the Sonic Drive-In at 1007 W. 23rd St. with a gun about 9 p.m. Saturday, demanded money and then tried unsuccessfully to enter the store.
