Police are still looking for the man who sexually assaulted two Penn students in an armed home invasion Dec. 19.

Philadelphia Police say that the incident, which occurred in an apartment on the 4400 block of Spruce Street, is similar to two others that occurred in Center City in October and believe the same person is responsible for all three attacks.

The Philadelphia Police Special Victims Unit said today that the suspect is still at large.

At about 3 p.m. Dec. 19, a man approached a 22-year-old Penn student as she was leaving her apartment on an upper floor of the building and forced her back into her apartment at knifepoint, according to Capt. John Darby of the Philadelphia Police Special Victims Unit.

Inside, he produced a handgun and robbed her of her iPod, cell phone, laptop and cash. He then bound, blindfolded and gagged her, Darby said.

The woman was tied for more than an hour, when her roommate, a 24-year-old Penn student, arrived. The 24-year-old student was robbed of similar items and then sexually assaulted several times by the perpetrator over the course of several hours.
