OKLAHOMA CITY -- A 16-year-old girl's heroic actions likely saved her family members' lives.

The teen was one of six people inside the home in the 7300 block of Northwest 105th Street when two people barged in duct taped the girl's family in an attempt to rob them.

Master Sergeant Gary Knight says the girl hid from the intruders eventually escaping out a second story window.

The girl ran to a neighbor's house to call police.

When officers arrived, they saw two men fleeing from the house. They were caught by one of the police dogs.

The two men arrested are Tom Nguyen, 20, and Tuam Quach Bui, 21.  Both were arrested on complaints of robbery with a firearm as well as kidnapping.

Its unclear why the two men broke into the home in the first place, but the family said they did hear one of the suspects say they had the wrong house.

Police say no one in the home was injured.
