3 Wanted in Delco home invasion

December 2, 2008 10:32:15 AM PST
The husband and wife told police that on Monday night at about eight, three gunmen burst into their home on the 400 block of Hampshire Drive in the Lawrence Park section of Marple Township in Delaware County.

The suspects tied up the couple, then took the wife to the basement and left the husband on an upper floor.

Police tell Action News that they think that the couple was followed home from their West Philadelphia business.

The husband managed to get loose and jump out of a window and call police.

The suspects noticed the husband had escaped and fled before police arrived. The victims had minor injuries.

There's no word on what items were taken from the home, but police say the place was ransacked.
