OKLAHOMA CITY – An elderly couple living in Oklahoma City was attacked during a home invasion on July 28, Oklahoma City police reported.

At 5:46 a.m., police received a call about a home invasion at the couple's house, located on Ranchwood Manor Dr. As police arrived, they found one of the victims lying in the front yard, and the other one inside the house.

According to the police report, at around 4 a.m. that day, the victims heard the doorbell rang so they answered the door. A man told them that he had gotten into a car accident and needed to use their phone. The man pushed his way inside the house when the victims opened the door, and put a black handgun in one of the victim's mouth.

The victims say six more men forced their way into the house and started asking for money. The men kicked both of the victims in their stomach, tied them up, and started searching the house for valuable items for about half an hour.

The men took the victims' 2004 Chevy Impala, a wallet that contains $70 in cash and some checks. After the suspects left, one of the victims crawled out of the house and yelled their neighbor's name for help. The neighbor later contacted the police.

Both of the victims were treated by EMSA at the scene for minor injuries.
