    An area street was closed for nearly two hours this morning as the search continued for men who burglarized a home overnight.

    Philadelphia Police responded to the 5300 block of Large Street in the city's Frankford section after four men, some armed, burst into a man’s third-floor apartment around 3:30 a.m. and took items.

    What the men took wasn’t clear. The homeowner wasn’t injured during the thefts, according to police.

    One of the suspects was caught after a short chase, the others got away, police said.

    Officers shut down Large Street near Sanger Street for nearly two hours and taped off some parked cars including a silver SUV as they searched for the three other suspects and investigated the home invasion.

    No descriptions were given for the remaining suspects.

    Around 6:30 a.m., investigators closed a section of Sanger Street near the Roosevelt Boulevard after finding more evidence behind a nearby day care center.
