Tulsa Police are investigating two separate incidents involving two men armed with a shotgun late Monday night.

The first happened around 11:30 p.m. at the Silver Creek Apartments near 41st and 107th East Avenue.

A resident had gone outside to smoke a cigarette when two men approached him.  One pointed a shotgun at him and demanded his money and cell phone. The victim told the robbers he did not have any money and his cell phone was broken.  The men left without taking anything.

The victim was not hurt.

Police believe the same two men robbed a man walking near 37th and 91st East Avenue about 20 minutes later. 

That victim had only a cell phone which he gave to the robbers.  He was not hurt.

Tulsa Police say the second victim told them the robbers were driving a newer model cream-colored car.  Neither victim could provide a detailed description of the robbers.
