“My roommates kept calm and gave them what they wanted”
This is becoming a regular thing. Do students still want to defund the police?
ABC News reports:
Another armed home invasion robbery reported near Temple University
Philadelphia police are investigating a string of armed home invasions involving Temple University students at off-campus housing.
The most recent incident occurred Monday around 6:18 a.m., when police say two men dressed in all black entered a home on the 1900 block of North 18th Street, several blocks from the university. One of the suspects wore a mask and was armed with an Uzi-style weapon, police said.
The suspects made off with several iPhones, an iPad, Apple Watches, a MacBook Pro and a Glock 19 handgun before fleeing in a black 2022 Black Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross also stolen from the property, police said. No injuries were reported and the car was recovered, police said.
Four people, including two male Temple students, were inside the home at the time, according to ABC Philadelphia station WPVI.
“They woke them up and they just had guns pointed at them,” a third roommate who wasn’t home at the time told WPVI.
“My roommates kept calm and gave them what they wanted,” he said.
The home invasion was reported nearly two weeks after two similar incidents in the area also involving Temple students at off-campus housing.
On Nov. 9 at around 4:40 a.m., three masked men in dark clothing — two of whom were armed with guns — entered a home also located on the 1900 block of North 18th Street, police said. They “approached” three 19-year-old female victims and fled the scene with a laptop, backpack, car keys and identification, police said. No one was injured.
