Phoenix Police say two men are in custody after they broke into a 91-year-old woman's home through a doggy door, robbed her and stole her car.

Officers were called to the home near 39th and Glendale avenues around 1 a.m. Sunday in response to the burglary.

The two men, both 20 years old, reportedly entered the woman's home through the doggy door, held her at gunpoint and took money and property before fleeing in the victim's 2006 Honda Civic.

Responding police quickly located the car, but the suspects fled on foot. Fortunately, they were quickly taken into custody and will be booked into jail on burglary and car theft charges.

The victim was not injured during the incident.
