    Members of the citizen crime patrol group Guardian Angels are trying to enlist the public's help to aid police in the search for two men who sexually assaulted and robbed an elderly woman earlier this week.

    Between 1 and 7 p.m. Sunday, Guardian Angels will be patrolling the 2300 block of West Clearfield Street, where the assault occurred in the woman's home early Wednesday morning. Investigators say that the two men sexually assaulted the woman before taking various items from the house, including cash and two 40-inch TVs.

    During their patrols Sunday, Guardian Angels will be handing out fliers with pictures of both suspects. Any information they receive from members of the public will be passed on to the Philadelphia Police Department.

    Two suspects in the case were captured on the surveillance video below.
