A 73-year-old Tulsa woman is recovering, after a man walked into her home Monday afternoon with a knife and robbed her of her money and her medications.

The News on 6 talked with the victim. She was shaken up, had a cut on her finger and her foot and was going to get checked out because she's had a previous heart attack and is on oxygen.

Tulsa Police say the door of the home in the 5000 block of South 35th West Avenue, was closed, but not locked and the man walked into the victim's bedroom.

They say her son heard the struggle and chased the man outside where he jumped into a white car driven by a woman.
