McAlester Police are looking for two men who they say ransacked an elderly woman's home Tuesday afternoon. 

Officers say the home invasion happened near North 11th Street and East Keller Street at about 4 p.m.  

The men entered the 89-year-old woman's home through an unlocked garage door. The woman was sitting in a chair at the time and one of the men forced her to stay seated while the other ransacked home, according to police. 

Police say the thieves stole the victim's purse and her medications.

The pair then left in what police describe as a small black car.  

They say the woman was shaken up but not injured.
