PHILADELPHIA -

Philadelphia police say two people have been charged in connection with a home invasion robbery involving four Temple University students, and a third suspect is still being sought.

The incident occurred Monday night at off-campus apartment housing on North 18th Street.

Police brought two suspects in for questioning after releasing surveillance photos in the case Tuesday, and the charges were filed Wednesday night.

According to investigators, one of the men followed a female student and then forced her into her apartment. Once inside, police say the suspects duct taped her and her three roommates and stole cell phones, cash and computers.

Police previously described the suspects as all being black men of similar height between the ages of 20-25. Identities of the two suspects and the third who is still at-large have not been released.

You can see additional images of them on the Philadelphia Police Department's YouTube page.

If you have any information, you're asked to call police at 215-686-TIPS or by text to PPD TIP or 773847.
