OKLAHOMA CITY -- Oklahoma City police are searching for four people who burst into a southwest Oklahoma City home early Wednesday morning.

Police say three men and one woman forced their way into a house near S.W. 41st Street and Villa. Five people were inside the home at the time. Three of them managed to run out the back door, but the other two victims were trapped inside the house with the suspects.

The suspects handcuffed the husband and wife, and forced them into a silver SUV. The husband was beaten, but managed to escape. He was taken to a hospital where he was treated and released.

The suspects held the wife for a while, and later dropped her off at S.W. 59th Street and Penn. She called police for help.

Police aren't sure about a motive behind the crime, but they say the suspects were clearly searching for something.
