Home invasions with random victims are rare in any city, including Tulsa. However a recent home invasion seems to have targeted an innocent family living in Midtown Tulsa and it has police very concerned.

News On 6 crime reporter Lori Fullbright reports the crime happened on Sunday, April 20th just before 6 a.m.

The victims say they woke up and three men they didn't know were standing in their bedroom.

"Subjects demanded the homeowner to go downstairs and remove cash, jewelry and electronics from the residence," said TPD Officer Leland Ashley.

The robbers forced the victims, including the children in the home, into a closet and locked the door. The victims say there were a total of four suspects and all were wearing black clothing.

"The homeowner believes two of the individuals were possibly in the neighborhood earlier in the week, knocking on doors, pretending to be tree trimmers," said Officer Ashley.

Because it is such an unusual crime, detectives hope they can get enough to solve the case, before the suspects decide to repeat their success.
