Police are still searching for two of three suspects in a northwest Oklahoma City home invasion and robbery.

It started before noon Monday, after a neighbor near Northwest 122nd Street and Windmill called officers.

The witness reported seeing three men in masks running from a home with their hands full.

When officers arrived, the two victims at the home told the investigators what happened.

“The mother of the victims apparently left the garage door open, so the suspects simply walked in through the garage and then into the house,” Oklahoma City Police Master Sgt. Gary Knight said.

The suspects allegedly woke the victims up, and held them at knife and gunpoint, robbing them of their phones and PlayStation.

According to reports, one suspect’s mask kept slipping during the robbery, revealing his face.

The victims also recognized that suspect’s distinctive voice, as that of a former high school classmate.

“It was very clear to them who was robbing them,” Knight said.

After the suspects left, the victims told police they recognized the suspect as Genness Gordon.

Police located Gordon at his grandmother's house late Monday, where he was arrested.

Shortly after the robbery, the victims’ phones were also found just a few blocks away from the original crime scene.

Two suspects and the PlayStation are still outstanding.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police through Crime Stoppers at 405-235-7300.
