A 91-year-old Phoenix, Arizona woman was asleep in her home Sunday when police say she awoke to a terrifying scene: two unknown men standing in her bedroom.

Phoenix Police say Tyrell Gregory Jones and Taquin Jobar Buie, both 20 years old, held the woman at gunpoint and demanded money.

Investigators say the men gained entrance to the victim’s home through a doggy door.

“She did what they asked her to do, she gave them money and they ransacked the house, they took money, jewelry, electronics, then took off in her car,” said Officer James Holmes.

Holmes said it didn’t take long for officers to spot the stolen vehicle and, after a short foot chase, both men were arrested.
