Police nab three fleeing home invasion suspects in Southwest Philadelphia

A fourth suspect escaped before police arrived.

Police nabbed three suspects during a home invasion robbery in the Elmwood section of West Philadelphia this evening.

Four gunmen burst into a family home on the 6700 block of Grovers Avenue around 4:30 p.m. and took an undetermined amount of money from wallets and purses belonging to its occupants, police said.

Officers responding to the scene arrested one of the gunmen as he fled out the front door and two others after they jumped from a second story window. Three guns were recovered from the suspects.

A fourth suspect was able to escape before police arrived. He is described as a 5-foot-6 to 5-foot-8 black male with short hair and a dark complexion. No injuries were reported.
