Oklahoma City police are investigating a report that two men with handguns entered a woman's vehicle and forced her to drive to her house in Bethany.

Ashley Ann Choate, 23, told police her boyfriend, Terrell Lawayne Sherfield, 29, normally lived with her, but an argument caused him to move out. Choate went to northwest Oklahoma City about 4:30 a.m. Saturday to try to speak with him, but another argument ensued, according to a police report released Monday.

She decided to leave and was sitting in her car when a man walked up to her door and pointed a handgun at her head, the report states. The robber told her, “Give me whatever you got,” took her phone and then entered the passenger seat, while another man holding a gun got in the back seat.

Choate said she didn't have anything else, and the men demanded she drive them to her home, the report said. The robbers had her unlock the front door and lie facedown on the living room couch while they ransacked the home. She later was moved to her bedroom.

A woman arrived about 10 minutes into the robbery and helped the men search through Choate's belongings, according to the report. The three robbers left the house with several items after 20 to 30 minutes. As they were leaving, they told Choate that her boyfriend set her up to be robbed, she said to police.
