Bridal Shop Helping Glenpool Couple Recover After Home Invasion
GLENPOOL, Oklahoma - A Glenpool couple left locked in their car after a home invasion, is still trying to get their life back together.
The robbers stole everything, including an engagement ring and one of their wedding bands, but a Broken Arrow bridal shop is helping them out. When Facchianos Bridal and Formal Attire learned what happened to one of its customers, the owners jumped in to help raise money for their special day.
Surveillance video inside Joshua Patton and Kari Cunningham's Glenpool home shows the invasion. Armed robbers squeezed through a doggie door and held the couple at gunpoint while stealing everything from their cell phones to several guns and rifles.
"We had been sticking money back every week to save for our wedding,” victim Cunningham said. “And they also stole my engagement ring off of my finger, and we had already purchased his wedding band and they stole that as well."
Patton said, "For someone to just take it, it's heartbreaking. It really is."
Cunningham's bridal shop is trying to make sure this home invasion doesn't ruin their wedding next spring. Lisa Lewis said she wants Patton and Cunningham to have the wedding of their dreams.
"We still want them to have the same vision that they had when they came in when they had worked years and years to get those funds together,” Lewis said. “We still want to have them honored by that."
Facchianos Bridal & Formal Attire is raising money online to keep that dream alive. The couple is grateful for the help.
Cunningham said, "We want to make sure it never happens to anyone else again."
Glenpool police said investigators are still looking for the four hooded men who stormed the house.
