TULSA - Tulsa police say an iPhone led them to two men they believe are responsible for a south Tulsa home invasion.
On December 7, Gloria and Mark Tomer awoke to a man in their bedroom. "He jumped on top of Mark and I, on our bed, and held a gun to my head and a knife to Mark's head," Gina said.
That man and his accomplice escaped with the couples' three iPhones, as well as an iPad, jewelry and money.
Gloria replaced her cellphone and about a month later, she tried using iPhone's audible assistant, Siri. On that attempt, Siri called her a different name: Monique.
"I thought, Monique? I don't have anyone by that name in my phone," she said.
The phone told her Monique lived across the street. That woman led detectives to Qushawn Tindall and Malcolm Hardridge, who police have arrested for the break-in.
The Tomers are relieved that the arrests were made, and Gloria says she forgave her attackers on the same night they were in her bedroom.
"I believe that everyone gets a chance to start over," Gloria said.
The victims were so happy with the work of the Tulsa Police Department, Gloria wrote Chief Chuck Jordan a thank you letter after the arrests.
