OKLAHOMA CITY — Early Sunday morning an elderly couple was the target of a home invasion. The couple, who lives in The Greens, said the suspects wore masks and demanded financial secrets, guns and all other valuables.
“They held them at knife point and demanded that they give them several items including their pin numbers to their debit and credit cards,” Sgt. Jennifer Wardlow said.
The couple said they went to the bank and saw the suspects had already taken out $300 from two different ATMs.
“One of the principle things they took was the stuff out of the gun safe. I had a gun safe which had a number of guns,” the homeowner said.
The residents also said the suspects took off with hydrocodone.
Now just a day later, the couple has finally agreed to get an alarm system.
“She has pushed before and I resisted, but I gave in now,” the homeowner said.
Police encourage anyone confronted with a similar situation to handle it just like this family.
“Obviously, don’t put up a fight, don’t struggle with the suspects; we don’t want to see anyone get hurt,” Sgt. Wardlow said.
If you have any information, you are asked to call the Oklahoma City Police Department.
