An elderly woman is shaken but unhurt after two men robbed her in her own home in Lakewood early Wednesday morning.

Authorities say the suspects gained entry just after midnight on the 11500 block of 215th Street. The 81-year-old woman told deputies the men didn't have weapons, but they forced her to hand over all her jewelry.

The suspects fled in an unknown direction. Deputies searched the area but were unable to find them.

Both suspects were described as black men, 18 to 25 years old, thin build, wearing dark clothing. One suspect was between 5 feet 5 inches tall and five feet eight inches tall. The other was said to be between 5 feet 8 inches to 6 feet tall.
