A man who told police he escaped four armed men in his house was arrested after officers searched the house.

Police were called about 8:55 a.m. Saturday by a southwest Oklahoma City resident who said a man with a long-barrel rifle was outside the house, asking for help.

Officers found Joshua Wolff, 23, who had a rifle. They accompanied Wolff to his house at 1441 SW 33, according to the report. Wolff told police he broke out a window to escape four armed men who were inside.

Wolff signed a waiver to allow police to search the house. Police found the broken window, another rifle, unlabeled and labeled prescription bottles, and credit cards belonging to other people, according to the report.

Police also found a baggie with 0.42 grams of a white powder, which tested positive for methamphetamine, along with syringes and three liquid vials, according to the report.

Wolff was arrested on complaints of possession of a controlled dangerous substance, possession of a firearm in commission of a felony and receiving/concealing stolen property.

He was taken to the Oklahoma County jail and his bail was set at $15,000, jail officials said. has disabled the comments for this article.
