Police are looking for two men who forced their way into a Tulsa home at gunpoint early Thursday.

Officers were sent to the home in the 1800 block of North Louisville just after midnight about an armed robbery.

The victims told police, two men, one carrying an AK-47, rang the doorbell numerous times before someone opened the door and both men barged inside demanding drugs and cash. Officers said after getting cash and a cell phone, the men got into what may have been a dark-colored Chevrolet Malibu and drove north on Louisville and west on Ute.

Police said four people were inside at the time, but no one was injured.  They add the homeowner had some breathing problems after the robbery and EMSA paramedics treated him at the scene.

The victims said the two black males appeared to be 20 to 25 years of age and were wearing dark colored jackets and jeans.
