ODESSA - One man didn't get very far after he tried to rob the Smoker's Outlet Store on Dixie on Wednesday.

Officers were called out to the store around 6:30 p.m.

When they got to the scene, they saw witnesses fighting with Gregory Okwusogu, who was wearing a black mask and socks on his hands to keep his identity hidden.

The witnesses told police that he climbed through the drive-thru window, then started making threats and demanded money.

Okwusogu is facing felony charges for robbery and evading arrest.

Authorities say he is not the same man that has robbed the store in the past.
