Knock, Knock — Who's there? Temple Students Beware!

Temple students targeted by gunmen

Knock, knock. 

Who’s there?

Temple students beware.  If you live off campus, you want to think twice before you answer the door. Police say two gunmen are targeting students.

Here’s their M.O. -- The gunmen knock on your door. When someone answers, they force their way inside. 

One of the suspects corrals anyone in the home into a room while the other gunman rifles through the house and makes off with any valuables.

The pair is taking credit cards, cash and even a laptop computer. Police won’t say how much cash they’ve made off with to this point.

There have been five home invasions since October 15.  All in one general area: 18th to 20th Streets between Montgomery and Norris Streets.
