Oklahoma City investigators are searching for a woman they say attempted to steal a vehicle from a motel parking lot.

Police say the victims were checking out of the motel early Feb. 10 in the 4200 block of W. I-40 Service Rd. when a woman jumped into their running vehicle and started to drive off. The victim chased the car but the suspect kept driving until a witness blocked the suspect vehicle in.

The suspect then reportedly then fled on foot. Police say a witness tried to grab the suspect as she fled but they reportedly saw a gun in the suspect's back pocket and decided to back off.

The suspect is described as a black female with dreadlocks featuring "frosted tips."
