Two suspects sought in home invasion

Phil­adelphia po­lice ar­res­ted one man and are search­ing for at least two more in con­nec­tion with a home in­va­sion rob­bery in Frank­ford early on Fri­day.

Of­ficers from the 15th dis­trict were called to the Check­er’s res­taur­ant at 5427 Ox­ford Ave. at 3:14 a.m. when the busi­ness ac­tiv­ated its si­lent hold-up alarm, ac­cord­ing to a po­lice spokes­wo­man. A man in the res­taur­ant told the of­ficers that “a couple males with guns” had just robbed him at his home on the corner of Sanger and Large streets.

The vic­tim led the of­ficers to the corner and poin­ted out sev­er­al men who were sit­ting in­side a parked Chevy Trail­blazer as the rob­bers. Sus­pects ex­ited the vehicle from the front a rear pas­sen­ger seats and ran east­bound to­ward the rear of 1100 Sanger St. A third man ex­ited the vehicle and ran to the 5400 block of Rut­land St., where po­lice ar­res­ted him. He was iden­ti­fied as Steph­en Wright, 22, of the 5800 block of N. 10th St., and charged with rob­bery and re­lated of­fenses.

Po­lice did not re­lease de­scrip­tions of the oth­er sus­pects.

Ac­cord­ing to WPVI-TV, the rob­bers stole com­puters, cash, cam­er­as and guns from the house, while po­lice re­covered two guns near the scene. ••
