Tulsa Police are investigating yet another home invasion. The latest happened in the 1900 block of East Oklahoma Place.

Officers say two men in hooded sweatshirts broke into a home and robbed the father, son and stepmother inside. One suspect had an AK-47 assault rifle. No one was hurt. The suspects got off with about $1,200 and some personal information about the victims. The suspects are two black men, last seen wearing grey hooded sweatshirts.

Officers say the suspect with the AK-47 is about six-feet-six inches tall and may have been wearing a hat. The other man is a little more than five feet tall, between 140 and 150 pounds. He was wearing a black mask.

If you know anything the home invasions, you can call Crimestoppers at 596-COPS. You can remain anonymous.

Since October 3rd, there have been at least eight home invasion robberies. They all happened in north Tulsa between Lewis and Sheridan. The robbers almost always targeted Hispanic or elderly victims.

In every case, there are 3 to 5 armed attackers who force their way into homes and terrorize the people inside. The robberies have gotten increasingly violent.
