Attempted Home Invasion Report in South Philadelphia

Philadelphia Police responded to the report of an attempted home invasion in South Philadelphia Wednesday morning that happened at the same home where a sex assault and burglary occurred earlier this week.

Police said there was a report that a man tried to enter a home along the 1800 block of S Rosewood Street, but he was not able to get in.

Someone heard the man trying to get in the back door and called 911, according to investigators. No one was hurt.

Police have been investigating two sexual assaults over the past three months in the area including one at the same home, said sources with knowledge of the investigation. In both previous cases, the suspect was described as wearing red gloves.

Police had not confirmed Wednesday morning's reported burglary attempt was connected to the two sex assaults.
