Tulsa Police officers say two men walked into a west Tulsa home, pulled a gun and stole cell phones and car keys from the people inside.

Police say it happened at a home in the 1100 block of North Xenophon. They say it was a crime of opportunity because the front door was open late at night.

Officers said the two robbers demanded money, but the five victims didn't have any so the pair took phones and car keys instead and ran away.

"So I guess at 11:30 at night, I would not suggest that people leave their front doors open and their screen doors unlocked," said Tulsa Police Cpl. Tammy Mans.

Police said the victims had no idea who the two men were and did not have a good description of them.
