At 6:25 a.m., the man reported two men wearing ski masks forced their way into his house in northwest Oklahoma City. Two residents were injured in the alleged home invasion, but police found no evidence any suspects were struck with the harpoon.
Sgt. Jennifer Wardlow says police have little information about what the suspects look like. She says anyone with information should call police.
