Man Takes Underage Boy To Convenience Store Robbery In Oklahoma; Wife Rips Off Ring (VIDEO)

And the number one easiest way to make your wife leave is... bringing her little brother to your armed robbery.

An unidentified Oklahoma City man allegedly brought an underage boy -- apparently his wife's sibling -- to a convenience store, where he proceeded to rob the teller at knifepoint.

KFOR caught some of the action on Sunday night (video below), including the moment when the suspect's wife decided it was over. The woman, who was confirmed as the suspect's wife by News Channel 4 photojournalist Norris Kyles, appears to scowl at her husband as he sits in the back of a police cruiser, and then takes her ring off for the camera.

It took officers a while to find the suspect and the boy, who reportedly ran from the scene after robbing Portland Express Mart teller Ali Mahdi. Cops used K-9 units and tracked them down beneath a car down the street, KFOR reported.

They brought the alleged thief back to the convenience store so Mahdi could identify him, and found his wife waiting there to pick him up. The woman apparently had no idea what the suspect had been up to with her little brother.

That's when the wife took off her ring.

Sadly, other alleged robbers have had the bright idea to bring the little ones along. In January, an Illinois mom was accused of bringing her 5-year-old son to a bank stickup. She was arrested as her son sat in the car.

And in September, a Maryland woman allegedly left her five children — ranging in age from 4 months to 6 years old — in the car while she robbed hotel guests.
