A 30-year-old woman is recovering after authorities said she was shot in the arm after accepting a ride from a man in Oklahoma City.
According to a news release issued Wednesday by the Canadian County sheriff’s office, the incident occurred Sept. 16.

The release states the incident began at Meridian Avenue and Enterprise Way.
Once inside the vehicle, the woman said the man pulled a handgun and drove the victim to NW 23rd Street and Gregory Road, where he demanded that the victim perform a sexual act.
The woman refused his demands and was ordered from the vehicle.
However, once outside the vehicle, the man allegedly fired two shots at her, hitting her in the right arm.
He also attempted to run over her, the news release states.
The victim was able to hide until the suspect left the area.

years old.
At the time of the incident, he was dressed in a blue T-shirt and camouflage pants.
He is described as having a tattoo, possibly of a flame on his left forearm.
