OKLAHOMA CITY – Police are looking for three suspects following a home invasion and burglary.
It happened in a neighborhood near SE 44th and S. Bryant.
"There's a lot of kids around here,” Shawnail Dennis said.
That’s why parents like Dennis were terrified when they heard three armed men broke into a metro home, kicking the door in, right across the street from Dennis’ brother’s house.
"It's pretty scary. Gotta be careful out here,” Dennis said.
According to the police report, one of the victims woke up her roommate when she realized someone was inside the house.
That victim told officers she was taken from her bedroom to the living room and then questioned by the suspects.
They asked, “Where is the stuff at? We know it’s here.”
Neither of the women knew what the suspects were talking about. Police believe they were referring to illegal items like drugs.
"There were none found in the house. Ultimately, they left with a female's purse. They tried to steal her car but were unsuccessful,” MSgt. Gary Knight with the Oklahoma City Police Department said.
The suspects didn’t leave without pistol whipping the victims, causing both of them to sustain injuries.
"We gotta get them off the street and keep the neighborhood safe so the kids can play and enjoy the summer,” Dennis said.
Police are looking for three men believed to be in their early 20s to late 30s.
