    The Tulsa County Sheriff's Office arrested one man on Thursday in connection to an armed robbery at a Bixby home on Monday.

    Deputies said a woman was leaving for work early Monday morning when a man with a gun approached her.

    He pointed the gun at her face and told her to go back into the house. She went back to the front door and knocked so her husband would let her inside.

    After her husband opened the door, the suspect and another gunman followed her into the home. They forced her husband to get on the floor.

    The victim said she told the men her credit card was in her car, so one of the suspects followed her to her car to get it.

    She told deputies her dogs were locked in the garage, so she told the suspects there was money in the garage, hoping the dogs would scare off the suspects.

    The suspects let her go to the garage. She let the dogs inside and ran for her car that was still running in the driveway.

    She drove to the nearby Fox Mart and had them call 911.

    The victim described the suspects as two black men both with guns and wearing all black hoodies on their heads.

    The woman's husband said he recognized one of the suspects because he hung out with their son occasionally. That suspect also pistol-whipped him in the face during the robbery, causing him to later get stitches.

    After she escaped in her car, the suspects followed her outside. The husband ran out the back door and to the neighbors house to call 911.

    The suspects stole his wallet, including two credit cards and $400 in cash.

    With the information from the victims, deputies were able to identify and arrest 24-year-old Brantrel Hurt. He was booked into jail for first degree robbery by force or fear, assault with a dangerous weapon and possession of a firearm.

    Deputies are still searching for the second suspect. If you have any information, please call TCSO at 918-596-5601.
