Tulsa police have arrested two people in connection with an overnight robbery at a Tulsa Apartment Complex. Police say three men approached three people at the Eagle Point Apartments and pulled a gun.

One of the victims was hit over the head, another was taken by gunpoint to a nearby ATM and ordered to withdraw money. When they returned to the complex, the suspects cut the phone lines and took the victims' cell phone batteries.

They escaped with $1,200 and a car. Tulsa police spotted the stolen Toyota 4-Runner a short time later on I-44. Roswell Kinnard and John Grimett were both taken into custody. Officers say there was no loot in the car. And, the third suspect is still on the loose.
