Four Sought After Tulsa Home Invasion Robbery

Posted: Updated:
TULSA, Oklahoma -

Police are looking for four men wanted in an early Tuesday home invasion and armed robbery.

Joseph Robinson just moved into the home recently and said he’s shaken up and angry.

According to Robinson, four teenage-looking men came to his home near Pine and Yale, walked up to the bedroom window and pointed guns and him and his wife. Robinson said he had the window cracked because the air conditioner wasn’t working.

"I fear for my old lady's safety ‘cause she can't walk, she can't move," Robinson said.

Robinson said two of the men kicked open the front door, walked in and held his stepson, Keeland Pruitt, at gunpoint.

"I was like, 'Here, take it. Take whatever you need,’" Pruitt said.

“The stepson offered some property for the suspects to take in attempt that he wouldn’t get harmed or his family wouldn’t get harmed,” said Tulsa Police Sergeant Brett Bilyeu.

Police said the robbers took a 53-inch TV and some medical papers, including Robinson’s birth certificate.

Robinson said they also took his gun, which he said he thought about grabbing but decided to follow orders instead.

“My life I don’t care about, but when it comes to my wife and my son, I gotta think twice,” he said.

The victims said they did not get a clear description of the robbers, but said they were last seen driving away in either an SUV or van going east on Oklahoma Street.

"It's just terrible that I have to lose sleep over this," Pruitt said.

The family will have to replace their door and its frame - just another thing for Robinson to deal with as he gets settled into his new home.

"I had just moved into this place and tried to make a better life for me and my family, and then this happened," he said.

Robinson, his wife and stepson were not hurt during the home invasion.
