OKLAHOMA CITY (Reuters) - Oklahoma police arrested two men suspected of putting on comic book super hero masks, beating a woman with a pistol and robbing her at a gas station on Thursday.

The suspects, who have not been identified, wore Batman and Captain America masks, Oklahoma City police said. A third suspect, described as an unmasked woman, was still at large.

The victim was hit twice in the head with a gun. She was treated and released at the scene, said Oklahoma City Police Sergeant Jennifer Wardlow.

"We learned that the victim went inside to pay for her gas, and when she went back out, a blue pickup pulled up behind her," Wardlow said. After that the victim was assaulted and robbed.
