Police: Group of teenagers hold victims at gunpoint during 2 home invasions
TULSA, Okla. (KTUL) —
Police are looking for a group of teenagers they say were involved in two armed home invasions.
Officers responded around 2 p.m. Wednesday to a home near Apache and Lewis. When police got there, they found two female victims with pieces of masking tape still around their wrists from being bound up by the suspects.
One of the victims told police she heard a knock at the door and went to answer it. She said she recognized the person at the door because he had previously been interested in buying one of their trailers. But when she opened the door, a larger man stepped up and pointed a gun at her forehead, according to police. Three suspects then entered the house while two waited outside.
Police say the three suspects dragged the victim and her sister around the house looking for drugs and money. They then took personal items and left the house.
Later that day, officers responded to a home near Union and Newton in northwest Tulsa. Police say four black males forced their way inside the home and held a man and woman at gunpoint. The couple's son was able to run away from the house and the suspects and call police at a friend's house.
One of the suspect's in the home held a gun to the father's head during the robbery, according to police. The suspects took the man's cell phone and left.
Police say all the suspects in the home invasions were described as black male teenagers wearing black.
