A manhunt is underway for a man suspected of robbing a Kansas Highway Patrol officer during a traffic stop.
The officer, who has not been identified, was patrolling eastbound on I-40 just before 5 a.m. on Saturday when he pulled over a white sedan that matched the description of the suspect.
It then sped off.
The officer, whose name has not yet been released, was wearing a bulletproof vest and his gun was pointed at the driver’s side window.
He said he could not see what the suspect was doing and he was not armed.
The suspect was described as an Asian man in his 30s or 40s wearing a black hoodie, blue jeans and black shoes.
He was last seen running southbound on Highway 41 between I-70 and the I-35 freeway in Oklahoma City, according to the Oklahoma City Police Department.
