Tulsa police are looking for suspects after two armed robberies Monday night. The first happened at the Walgreens near 51st and Lewis.

Police say two men came up to a customer at about 8:15 p.m., slapped a phone out of his hand and demanded cash. The suspects then forced that man to his apartment nearby, but the victim's roommate wouldn't open the door.

The victim wasn't hurt.

Moments later, police say the same men went to a home near 52nd and Yorktown and found a man with the garage open working on his car. The suspects went in and demanded cash with a gun.

The homeowner ran inside, and the suspects fired two shots through the door. The homeowner was shot in the torso and taken to the hospital.

He's expected to survive.

One suspect is described as a light-skinned Black or Hispanic male wearing a light gray sweatshirt and long camp shorts. The other is a Black male wearing dark jeans and a dark hoodie.

Police are looking for two suspects this morning. If you know anything that can help them, call Crime Stoppers at 918-596-COPS.
