Altus Police: 77-year-old robbed at knifepoint during home invasion

Altus- Altus police are looking for a man who broke into a home and put a knife to a 77-year-old man's throat.
 
A press release from 8 a.m. Wednesday morning says it  happened in the 300-block of East Live Oak Tuesday afternoon around 3:30 p.m. 
Police say the robber was already in the house when the victim came home. He told police the suspect came up behind him, put a knife to his throat and  demanded money, jewelry and medication before tying him up and leaving. The man was able to free himself and go to a neighbor's house after the robber left.

So far, APD says they do not have a description of the man, but they plan to interview the victim today to see if he can provide additional information. Count on 7NEWS for updates as they come in.
