More than $20K stolen in home invasion

Three armed rob­bers stole more than $20,000 in cash and jew­elry from a Fox Chase fam­ily after break­ing in­to a park-side home on Monday morn­ing.

The ban­dits used duct tape to bind four vic­tims, in­clud­ing a 24-year-old man, a 26-year-old wo­man, a 50-year-old wo­man and a 5-year-old boy, po­lice said. The vic­tims, who are Asi­an, de­scribed the as­sail­ants as three Korean men.

The crime oc­curred at about 9:30 a.m. at a twin home on the 1100 block of Tabor Plaza, a cul-de-sac bor­der­ing on Pennypack Park. The sleep­ing vic­tims were awaken when the gun­men burst through a rear door and de­man­ded money at gun­point, po­lice said. After ob­tain­ing the cash, jew­elry and “per­son­al doc­u­ments,” the rob­bers fled in an un­known dir­ec­tion. The vic­tims re­por­ted no in­jur­ies.

One rob­ber was de­scribed as 35 years old, 6 feet tall and 180 pounds. He was clean-shaven and has a tat­too on one of his up­per arms. He wore dark clothes and car­ried a dark hand­gun. The oth­er two rob­bers were both de­scribed as 25 years old, 5 feet 6 inches tall and 140 pounds with dark cloth­ing.
