A FOX23 investigation discovered home burglaries are on the rise in Tulsa.
On Tuesday, FOX23 reported an attempted burglary near 31stand Garnett that left one man with gunshot wounds.
Now, Tulsa police say the crimes have gotten more violent.
"You never know they could come back to the same neighborhood or it could be a separate burglar that didn't even know something had occurred in the neighborhood the night before," said Officer Jillian Roberson with Tulsa police.
She said these crimes are cyclical and right now, they're rising.
"Most of these burglaries that are occurring during the day, they're actually hoping that nobody's home. They're banging on the door, knocking on the door and if nobody answers they kick the door in. Which is exactly what happened yesterday. Only the homeowner was inside. And the person who got in, shot him twice before leaving," she said.
FOX23 found the front window of the home broken into not only has a security sticker but there's also a hidden camera in the corner of the window seal.
That's something Roberson said is easier than most people think.
"Putting in a home surveillance system, you can obviously get an alarm installed on your home just small things double checking that all your doors and windows are locked during the day," she said.
She also said if you notice your front door is kicked in, it's best not to go inside to see what's missing but to call the police.
