MUSKOGEE, Oklahoma -- Muskogee Police have release the 911 call of a brave little girl who called them during an armed home invasion Wednesday afternoon.

The girl called police to say she was hiding in a bedroom from three armed men who had broken into their home.

911 Operator: "Stay on the line with me okay?"
Girl: "Yes sir."
911 Operator: "You're okay."
Girl: "Do you want us to go in a closet?"
911 Operator: "If that will make you feel safer, you go right ahead and do that, okay?"

Jack Ayers and his wife Delena Della live in the home.

"It makes me want to go up there and whoop them. It makes me want to go up to that jailhouse and whoop every one of them," Ayers said.

"How are we supposed to feel safe now? How are my kids supposed to feel safe?" Della said.

Della's daughter and the daughter's husband were watching the kids for them when the robbers barged in.

"Aside from them robbing us, they terrorized my kids, they put a gun to my daughter, they beat the hell out of my son-in-law with a two-by-four that had nails in it," Della said. 

Police arrested Muskogee resident Steven Jones-McDaniel, 23, and Jamelle McNeal, 25, of Tulsa. A 17-year-old male suspect was also arrested.  Police said the men stole cash and several electronics like an ipad, laptop, digital camera, cell phones and a speaker box.

Officers recovered some of the stolen property and returned it to the family. Several children were in the house during the break-in Wednesday.

"I just took them in my arms and I said, 'that was so brave,' Della said. "'I said, 'that was the best thing you could have done.' I'm so proud of you,' because she took her 8-year-old sister and she drug her in the closet with her and they sat in there and that's where the police found them."

The kids are staying with relatives right now and didn't go to school today because they are still scared.
