Authorities are seeking two suspects who tied up an elderly couple in their home during an armed robbery.
A third suspect who drove a getaway car is also being sought.
Two suspects entered the home of an elderly couple in their 70s, located in the 100 block of East Drive in Tuttle, just before 11 p.m. on Aug. 31.
The husband was beaten by one of the suspects and then tied up along with his wife, according to a report from the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation.
The husband was able to break free and access a loaded gun within the home and he shot at the suspects. The two suspects fled after shots were fired. They fled the scene in a vehicle waiting outside the couple’s home. A third suspect was driving the vehicle.
Authorities are seeking a female in her mid-20s to early 30s, standing about 5’4 and weighing about 130 pounds as well as a male in his mid-20s to early 30s standing about 5’7 and weighing about 140-145 pounds. The female may have a tattoo on the back of her neck or upper back. The male may have tattoos on the top of his right arm.
The third suspect was observed on video surveillance sitting in the driver’s seat of the vehicle but never entered the home, according to OSBI.
