Four juveniles are in custody in the home invasion and beating of an elderly Muskogee woman. Joy Vogel was robbed twice in November 2014.

In one of those robberies, police say she was pistol whipped when she didn't respond to demands quickly enough.

"He hit me with a fist that had the gun in it, twice," Vogel told News On 6 reporter Tess Maune. 

They stole cash, a purse and a hearing aid. They also broke her glasses, she said.
