     BT)--An Enid teen is in custody and facing charges in connection with a recent attempted robbery. Enid Police Department officers arrested the 15-year-old boy Monday night on a complaint of armed robbery. Lt. Tim Jacobi told the Enid News and Eagle that officers responded just before 8:30 Monday night to Mac’s Mart II, 431 E. Broadway, in reference to a robbery. Officers spoke with a woman who was pumping gas into her car when she was approached by a teen who put a gun to her head and demanded she give him money. Jacobi said she refused and the suspect swatted at her a couple of times with the gun. He said at one point, the suspect pulled the trigger a couple of times but the gun did not discharge. Officers were later able to identify the suspect as 15 year old Melik Baker. He was also identified as the suspect in an attempted robbery of the same quick shop on September 18th. Monday night officers took the victim to Baker’s home in the 600 block of East Maple, where she identified Baker as the man who had attempted to rob her earlier. Officers obtained a search warrant for the residence, and inside Baker’s bedroom located a semi-automatic handgun that fit the description given by the victim, as well as the clothing worn by the suspect in the robbery, as described by the victim. Jacobi said Baker was booked into Garfield County Detention Facility as a youthful offender on the armed robbery complaint.
