OKLAHOMA CITY — Police are searching for multiple suspects following an armed home invasion.

“My 3-year-old was just hiding under the covers,” the homeowner, who wanted to remain anonymous, told News 4.

It happened around 8:30 a.m. Thursday. The homeowner said she left the door open while taking her daughter to school.

“I got back, and it was locked but I was like, oh, I got a key,” she said. “So, I try to open it, but some black guy opened it for me, pointed a gun to my head.”

The suspect, along with multiple others, then started making demands.

The homeowner said all she could think about was her husband and kids, who were asleep but quickly woke to the chaos.

"At first, they were like get on the floor, get on the floor, don't look at us,” the woman said.

Then, they demand a long list of things, including cash.

"When my husband opened the safe, when they had I guess what they wanted, they told us to go to the restroom and just locked us in there,” she said.

The suspect’s got away with cell phones, tablets, guns and about $6,000 in cash.

Before they got away, the woman’s husband tried to stop them.

“The homeowners did fire rounds. However, it's not believed that he actually struck any of the suspects,” said Megan Morgan with the OCPD.

Fortunately, nobody in the family got hurt, and the homeowner said that’s all that matters.

"I was like don't do anything to us, my babies are here. They were like we won't do anything to the kids. I was like everybody says that. I'm like I don't trust you,” she said.

So far, no arrests have been made.
