Police are looking for two men who broke into an Oklahoma City house Wednesday night, locked the family in a closet, and got away with more than $3,000 in cash.

According to police, officers responded to the report of a robbery at a home, located in the 1600 block of W. Park Place.

The victim's son told police he and his mother had left the home to pick up his siblings from school. When they returned, they saw a man walking out of their backyard door with a sheet wrapped around several objects. As the suspect saw the family, he dropped the sheet, ran through their backyard and jumped the fence.

The mother thought no one else was inside their house. However, as she and her four children walked into the home, they saw another suspect stepping down the stairs to their attic. The victim said the suspect dropped a bunch of cash as he was stepping down the stairs.

The suspect reportedly kicked the mother as she was holding her baby. He then forced the victims into a closet in a bedroom, and propped a wooden chair against the closet door to prevent it from being opened.

The victims were locked in the closet for about 40 minutes before they could open the door and call police. 

Police say the suspect stole $3,400 in cash and a Play Station 3 game console.

The first suspect is described as a black man, about 25 to 30 years old, who stands 5 feet 9 inches tall and weighs about 140 pounds. He had brown hair and was wearing a white t-shirt.

The second suspect is described as a black man, about 35 years old, who stands 6 feet tall and weighs 190 pounds. He had short hair, and was wearing a black shirt, black pants and black gloves.

If you have any information, call Oklahoma City police immediately.
