NORMAN, Okla. -

Police are looking for three suspects accused of breaking into three homes Monday morning.

In the first two homes, the suspects were chased away by residents before taking anything.

At the third home however, the victim was assaulted and robbed.

“I was terrified. I’d always thought of things like that, but you don’t think of it happening to you,” the victim said.

The elderly man said he was enjoying his morning, when the three suspects came through his front door, pointing a gun at him. 

“Then for some reason he just walked around the side here and whacked me upside the head,” the victim said of the assault.

The suspects took off with the man’s credit card, money, electronics and his watch.

Police said in each break-in, the suspects got into the homes through open or cracked doors.

“We believe these individuals were looking for crimes of opportunity whether that be cracked garage doors, front doors left open, any kind of quick access to a home or residence,” Sarah Jensen with the Norman Police Department said.

Shortly after the crimes, the suspects used the stolen credit cards in multiple locations in Moore, where surveillance cameras captured their faces.

“We were able to obtain those suspect photos and a photo of the car which now we are asking people to help us identify,” Jensen said.

As for the man who was robbed, he has recovered after receiving stiches for his injury.

Anyone with information on the suspects can call the Norman Police Department at 405-366-7867.
