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.
