TUTTLE, Okla. – The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation is releasing another image of the male suspect in an armed robbery of a Tuttle couple on August 31.

Attached is an image of the suspect who is described as:

A female suspect that also entered the residence is described as:

A third suspect was observed on video surveillance sitting in the driver’s seat of what is believed to be a Mazda 3. The third suspect never entered the home.

On Sunday, the OSBI issued an advisory looking to the public to assist in identifying the three suspects.

The Tuttle Police Department requested assistance from the OSBI for an armed robbery and shooting that occurred just before 11 p.m. on Aug. 31. An elderly couple in their late 70s living in the 100 block of East Drive in Tuttle, were tied up by two suspects after they entered the couple’s home. The husband was beaten before being tied up with his wife. He was able to break through his bindings and get to a loaded gun and shot at the suspects. The suspects took off after the shots were fired. They fled to a vehicle waiting outside the home with a third suspect inside.

If you can help identify the suspects in this case, please contact the OSBI at (800) 522-8017 or [email protected].
