Penn's Kappa Alpha Theta sorority house was burglarized Friday afternoon, students in the sorority said. 

A UPennAlert was sent out at 4:05 p.m. on Friday alerting students about the burglary on the 100 block of South 39th Street.

Two heavyset males, approximately 5'11" and wearing all black, were reported as suspects in the burglary. There were additional police in the area, and a K-9 unit was on the scene.

“Someone was walking into the house, and they realized a man had followed them in," Engineering sophomore and Theta member Marlena Guttman said. "We’re not sure if it [was] one or two [burglars] but as soon as someone saw them, they ran upstairs."

At 4:41 p.m., the area was announced all clear, according to a second UPennAlert. Police also reportedly left the scene minutes later.
