Tulsa Police say two men armed with handguns forced their way into an apartment and took a disabled man's medication Tuesday night.

Officers said the victim told them two black males kicked in his front door at the Tamarack Apartments near 61st and Peoria at about 11 p.m.

Police said the pair fought with the victim before taking the man's medication as well as his credit and debit cards.

The 51-year-old victim told police the two men were tall and skinny and were wearing tan overalls with their faces covered.

"The homeowner is a disabled man that lives alone and two black males in their 20s kicked in the door. Both of them had weapons, handguns and demanded his pills," said Tulsa Police officer Dianna Liedorff.

EMSA paramedics treated the victim at the scene for minor injures.
