2 Hurt After Masked Gunmen Break Into South Philly Home

Two men were hurt after four masked suspects broke into their house during a home invasion in South Philadelphia Sunday night.

The armed suspects broke into the third floor of a rooming house on the 2200 block of South 7th Street at 8:01 p.m. The suspects demanded $25,000 from a 46-year-old and 49-year-old man inside, according to investigators.

The suspects forced the 46-year-old man out of the house and to his vehicle during the incident. The 49-year-old man meanwhile escaped from the home by jumping from a third floor window.

The suspects stole an unknown amount of cash, house keys and car keys to a grey Toyota Avalon before fleeing the scene.

The 46-year-old man suffered a laceration to the back of the left side of his head as well as swollen lips. He was taken to Jefferson Hospital. Officials have not yet revealed his condition.

The 49-year-old man suffered a cut to his chin and injury to his right foot.

Officials have not released a detailed description of the suspects. They continue to investigate.
