SULPHUR – Murray County deputies are investigating a home invasion that left one woman stabbed.

The victim, Deneen Gulla, is recovering from her injuries in the hospital, while Murray County sheriff's deputies are looking for two suspects in connection with the crime.

They don't have much to go on other than two masked men who attacked Gulla when she was home alone.

What happened in a rural Murray County home has neighbors rattled.

“It happens close to your home, and it worries you," said Terry Dodson. "I’ve got kids and grandkids, you know. They’re here all the time, especially when something like that happens at night."

Down Wallace Road Monday night just before 9 p.m., Dodson’s neighbor was stabbed multiple times by two masked men inside her home.

Sheriff’s deputies said there was a struggle between the three, and eventually Gulla’s attackers took off.

“She’s just a good person," Dodson said. "Like everybody else out here, we all kind of mind our own business and take care of each other when they need some help."

Paramedics airlifted Gulla to an Oklahoma City hospital.

There, Murray County deputies and OSBI were able to interview Gulla, but she didn’t have much information to give them.

Investigators are trying to find out if Gulla was targeted.

She lives on an isolated road, and the suspects didn’t steal anything.

As she recovers, her neighbors are on high alert, hoping investigators find the suspect soon.

“You don’t know what to do about it, except keep your doors locked and hope nobody comes in,” Dodson said.

We’re told Gulla is in stable condition.

Anyone with information on the crime should call the Murray County Sheriff’s Department.
