Police looking to ID possible NW OKC home invasion suspect

OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) — Oklahoma City police want to find a trio of people behind a violent home invasion. Police say three masked men, one with a gun and another holding a knife, barged into a home off NW 18th and Portland back on February 24, 2024.

A man and several children were inside the home during the incident. Police released a picture of a person of interest they say was connected to the incident, but are still looking to identify two others.

According to police, the men were wearing black clothing, black masks, and blue latex gloves. One of them demanded to talk to the homeowner.

“The homeowner was not there at the time,” said Sgt. Dillon Quirk, Oklahoma City Police Department. “These were family members of the homeowner that were there.”

Police say the person armed with a gun pointed the pistol at the man’s head and ordered him to hand over money before ransacking the house. The man and children were then reportedly forced into a bathroom and told to “count to 100” before they could come out and if they did call police, they would “come back and kill them.”

“They left with several hundreds of dollars, along with some property inside the home,” said Quirk.

Investigators have been in the neighborhood talking to neighbors following the incident. KFOR spoke to one who did not want to go on camera but said the family recently moved into the area.

Police believe the homeowner and the three wanted individuals know each other. The picture of the person of interest released by OKCPD showed the man with a tattoo on his neck.

“Fortunately, nobody was injured in this incident,” said Quirk.

Police are asking anyone with information on the identity of the suspect to call Crime Stoppers at either 405-235-7300 or 800-632-TIPS. You can also send a text message to 405-415-5666 or okccrimetips.com. You may remain anonymous and be eligible for a reward.
