    'Wrong House' in Somerton Home Invasion?

    Three people were tied up by robbers in a home invasion early Friday in the Somerton section of Northeast Philadelphia.

    None of the three victims were hurt, and the robbers made off with an undisclosed amount of cash, police said.

    The attack occurred in the 1400 block of Farraday Street, just blocks from the edge of the city in the Far Northeast.

    Police are still investigating why the robbers, armed with at least one weapon, chose the house, but they also said one of the victims may have heard a robber ask, "Do we have the wrong house?" (Published Friday, May 13, 2016)

    Intruders in a Philadelphia home invasion may have picked the "wrong house."

    The suspects broke into the home in the city's Somerton neighborhood early Friday and tied up a couple in their 60s and their 37-year-old son. They wore masks and gloves and one had a gun.

    They repeatedly asked the family where the money was while they ransacked the place.

    The family overheard one of the suspects say "we have the wrong house" before they fled with a small amount of cash from the son's wallet.

    No one was seriously injured.
