OKC Police arrest one of two suspects involved in brutal home invasion
OKLAHOMA CITY – Neighbors are still on edge after a brutal attack that started with a knock on the door.
Police say two men forced an elderly woman back inside her home when she answered the door, and then beat her.
The two men then ransacked her home, took her purse and keys, and left the 68-year-old woman lying on the floor with a broken arm and hip.
Captain Dexter Nelson said “One of the guys asked if she needed [her] glasses to see and she ‘yeah I use them to read’ and he said ‘oh really?’ He takes them, rips them off, and stomps on them.”
Police say the woman tried to crawl to a phone for more than 8 hours to call for help.
Meanwhile, security cameras caught the two suspects using her stolen credit cards around town. Thanks to that video, police arrested 25-year-old Chad Stone Friday night.
Detectives went back to the neighborhood Saturday, hoping to learn anything new about the second suspect.
Detectives have identified the second suspect and are now searching for him.
