Broken Arrow, Ok – 5 teenagers accused of Broken Arrow home invasion

BROKEN ARROW, Okla. (AP) Authorities say five teenagers have been arrested after an early morning home invasion in Broken Arrow.

According to police, a neighbor called 911 at about 1:40 a.m. Monday after hearing a woman screaming for help. Police say five masked men armed with guns kicked down the back door of a home and ordered the residents to lie face down. The robbers took guns and electronics then ripped the phones from the walls and left.

Police say the suspects were arrested shortly after the incident. Two of the men are accused of running from police and face additional charges.

Four of the suspects are 19 and one is 18. They have not been formally charged, though authorities say they will likely face charges of robbery, burglary and threatening a violent act.
