SOUTH PHILADELPHIA (WTXF) - Police are investigating following a violent home invasion in South Philadelphia that left a teenage girl injured and her family shaken, as two safes with her father’s life savings were stolen.
The incident happened shortly before 1 a.m. Wednesday on the 1100 block of South 10th Street.
Police say two suspects broke into the rear door of the victim’s home and, once inside, pistol-whipped a 17-year-old girl who was home alone.
Two safes filled with a large sum of money and jewelry were allegedly stolen from the home.
Witnesses say they saw the men exiting the home with the safes. A third person was reportedly waiting in a getaway car before fleeing with the two suspects and stolen goods.
