Tulsa po­lice are in­ves­ti­gat­ing two home in­va­sions that oc­curred Wed­nes­day in north and north­west Tulsa.

Of­fi­cers first re­sponded to a re­port of three to five males with guns break­ing into a home in the 2700 block of East Woodrow Place about 2:10 p.m. There they found two women with pieces of mask­ing tape still around their wrists from when the in­trud­ers had bound their hands to­gether, po­lice said.

One wo­man told them she heard a knock at the door and rec­og­nized the per­son as some­one who was pre­vi­ously in­ter­ested in buy­ing a trailer. When she opened the door, a large man ap­peared and pointed a gun at her fore­head, telling her to go back into the house, she said.

Three males en­tered the house while two oth­ers waited out­side. The vic­tim said the three dragged her and her sis­ter around the house look­ing for drugs and money be­fore tak­ing some per­sonal items and flee­ing, ac­cord­ing to po­lice.

Of­fi­cers were called to the 1700 block of West La­timer Place shortly be­fore 9 p.m. and were told four teenagers had forced their way in­side a home and held a man and wo­man at gun­point. The cou­ple's son re­port­edly ran out­side through a back door and es­caped de­spite be­ing chased by one of the teens. The son called the po­lice from a friend's house.

The cou­ple said the in­trud­ers even­tu­ally left the house af­ter tak­ing one of the vic­tim's cell­phones.
