Tulsa authorities are looking for a man who robbed a 91-Year-old Tulsa County woman.

They say the man used the woman's own gun against her. News on Six crime reporter Lori Fullbright explains how you can help. Deputies say the robber walked right into the woman's home in the 800 block of E 60th Street North on January 25th around 1:30 in the afternoon. Tulsa Police officer, Lucky Lamons, "Inside the living room was a black male, five-six to five-eight, 160 pounds. He said he wanted to use the phone, but, instead, he started looking around."

Police say the man found the woman's loaded gun and used it against her to take her money. "He pointed the gun a the victim and she's 91 years old and made her get in her car and drive to a bank in the drive-thru and write a check for $500 cash."

Since they used the drive-thru, there's no picture of the suspect, so, deputies are depending on the public to turn him in.
