OKC Police search for suspects in home invasion, assault of elderly woman
Police say two men broke into a home in NW Oklahoma City Sunday morning and left a victim on the floor with serious injuries for 12 hours before she could call police.
Captain Dexter Nelson tells FOX 25 the two men broke into a home in the 3100 block of NW 35th Street around 10 AM Sunday. Police say the men knocked on the door and asked for someone she didn't know. She then said they asked if her husband was home before they forced themselves in and knocked her over. According to Nelson, the woman broke her hip in the fall.
Nelson says once the men were inside the house, they ransacked it; taking the woman's car keys, checks, credit cards, and other items before leaving her on the floor. Police say it took her 12 hours to get to a phone and call police for help.
According to police the men were caught on surveillance camera at a nearby store using the victim's credit cards. Police say they used them at several other locations as well.
The woman is in critical condition and police are asking for anyone who recognizes these men to call CrimeStoppers at 235-7300.
