Police searching for suspects in Tulsa home invasion and robbery

The homeowners say the thieves rang the doorbell and took the husband’s wallet and car keys

TULSA, Okla. — Tulsa Police say a man and woman were robbed at gunpoint in their own home over the weekend.

Officers say they were called out to a home near 31st and 129th East Avenue just before 7:30 p.m. Sunday night.

According to police, Gary Berryhill was inside the residence with his wife when they heard the doorbell ring.

Mr. Berryhill went through the garage to answer the doorbell when he says he was met with a gun pointed at his head.

He says the suspect had the lower portion of the mouth covered with a mask and demanded Mr. Berryhill go back into the residence.

Police say Mr. Berryhill attempted to walk between his personal vehicle and a riding lawn mower when he fell onto the guard of the riding lawnmower causing him to get a black eye and a laceration to the back of the head.

After getting back to his feet, he says the suspect escorted him back into the residence.

Mr. Berryhill told police the suspect placed the muzzle of the handgun against his head while demanding his wallet and car keys.

He says a second suspect then came into the residence and forced Mrs. Berryhill onto the floor at gunpoint. She has medical issues and was not able to get back up onto her feet without assistance.

Investigators say Mr. Berryhill saw his vehicle being driven away by the suspects out of the driveway.

Police say they are searching for a stolen vehicle but don’t yet have any leads on suspects.
