OKLAHOMA CITY - A couple in northwest Oklahoma City is shaken after two men forced their way into their apartment Friday morning.

Police are now searching for the two male suspects.

Around 9:00 a.m. Friday at Aspen Place Apartments, the victims opened their door to the unexpected.

"They answered a knock on the door and two black males in their 20's forced their way in," said Lt. Dennis Buckley with the Oklahoma City Police Department.

After the suspects entered the apartment, police say there was a lot of commotion.

"They threatened the residents and they took several small items,” said Lt. Buckley.

Police said a man was tased a number of times during the robbery.

The victims' next door neighbors were in their morning routines when they heard the loud noises.

"I'm using the bathroom, an early morning thing and I hear all this banging and I was like, what is all that,” said Marquete Carter.

"I heard a little knocking, some wrestling, thought it was the neighbor's kids," said Nick Long. "Then I heard the tires peel out."

Police said the suspects took off in a dark grey or charcoal colored Chevy Impala.

Officials don't know if this crime was targeted.

"I hope it wasn't random because I could be next. I could be at work, then come home and my apartment is broken into,” said Long.

Neighbors say the crime has put them on high alert.

"Especially with it being so close, a neighbor, I'm going to have to be a little more cautious than I normally am,” said Long.

"It's Christmas time. Nobody deserves to be hurt or anything like that,” said Carter.

If you have any information about this robbery, please call the Oklahoma City Police Department.
