Three men forced a female employee walking along 41st and Pine streets Sunday afternoon to take them to her house and allow them to ransack it, police said Tuesday. The three men -- all described as between 17 and 20 years old, wearing white T-shirts and shorts -- spent about ten minutes burglarizing the house before leaving. The woman reported the incident to Victim Support Service, police said. In an unrelated incident, a male resident of the Delta Psi fraternity house at 3637 Locust Walk surprised an intruder ransacking his room last Saturday, and was in turn surprised when the burglar turned a handgun on him and ordered him to fill a duffle bag with personal belongings, police said. According to the victim, the assailant then forced him to carry the bag from the house -- commonly known as Saint Anthony's -- and walk with the robber to 40th and Powelton streets, where the assailant took the bag and fled. The victim was unharmed.Comments powered by Disqus
