Investigators are searching for two men who broke into a home on the 900 block of Wolf Street in South Philadelphia early Tuesday morning.

Police say one person was tied up and covered with a sheet while the men robbed the home. There were two other residents inside that were not hurt.

The men stole various items from the house.

Around the same time and a few blocks away, police investigated another home invasion at 13th and McKean. Authorities say a 29-year-old man told them a man in a black knit cap showed up in his bedroom and told him "give me your money."

The victim said the intruder slashed his wrist with a knife or razor and ran off.

Both incidents are under investigation.
