BETHANY, Oklahoma -

Bethany police arrest two suspects in Monday night's home invasion near N.W. 50th and Rockwell that left a man battered and bruised.

Police say tips came in from a citizen and a local business following an August 21 report on News 9. The information led investigators to the suspects at an apartment complex near N.W. 23rd Street and Portland.

Officers arrested Fernon Nelson and Shane Lott. They're waiting to be booked into the Oklahoma County jail on complaints of burglary, assault and battery, and concealing stolen property.

The victim in the home invasion, Allen Oakley, said the suspects knocked on his door around 9:30 p.m. Monday. When Oakley opened the door, two men forced their way inside the house. Oakley fought with them, and in the struggle one of his teeth was knocked out and one of his eyes blackened.

Oakley told News 9 he wanted to warn people to be mindful when answering their doors.

Police say both Nelson and Lott have an extensive criminal history. Investigators are now obtaining search warrants to look through their apartment for stolen items.
