SVU seeks suspects in two NE incidents

The Phil­adelphia Po­lice De­part­ment’s Spe­cial Vic­tims Unit on Fri­day re­leased de­tails about two on­go­ing in­vest­ig­a­tions in the North­east.

On March 11, a 16-year-old girl re­por­ted that she was ap­proached by a man in a vehicle who made lewd com­ments to her as she walked to school. The in­cid­ent oc­curred at about 8:20 a.m. on the 4300 block of Penn St. in Frank­ford. Ini­tially, the man pulled up along­side the girl and at­temp­ted to start a con­ver­sa­tion. When the girl called her moth­er on her cell phone, the man dir­ec­ted lewd com­ments at her then drove away, po­lice said.

The man was de­scribed as black and op­er­at­ing a black Jeep with sil­ver trim around the win­dows.

On March 12 at about 9:15 p.m., an un­known man entered an­oth­er man’s home on the 1100 block of Solly Ave. in Fox Chase and in­de­cently as­saul­ted the res­id­ent. The 31-year-old vic­tim said that the in­truder ac­cessed the house through an un­locked door and fled on foot after the as­sault.

The in­truder was de­scribed as white, 45 to 50 years old and stocky with a yel­low shirt and blue base­ball cap. ••
