Tulsa Police are looking for three men who tricked a woman into letting them in her apartment, before they robbed her.

Police say the men knocked on the door of a unit at the Lincoln Glen Apartments in the 6700 Block of South Peoria just before 1 AM.

They claimed to be maintenance workers, there to check for a busted pipe.

When the victim opened the door, three men forced their way inside and demanded money.

They were armed with a handgun and a large knife.

Police say the suspects ransacked the apartment and stole the victim's keys and cell phone. The victim wasn't hurt.

Officers did recover a black air pistol inside the residence, which was submitted as evidence.
