Police are investigating the report of a home invasion in the Powelton section of Philadelphia.

Authorities were called to the 400 block of North 32nd Street around 8:30 p.m.

A Drexel student told arriving officers that there was a knock at his door. When he answered the door, a man with a gun made his way into the home.

The student tells police the intruder stole two MacBook laptops, an X-Box, an X-Box game, a wallet containing $20, and a BlackBerry Curve cell phone.

The suspect then made the two residents, 20 and 21-year-old males, go up to the second floor before he fled the scene.

The victims describe the suspect as a black male with a mustache standing approximately 5'9", with a thin build with a gap between his teeth. They also noted he held the gun in his right hand.

Anyone with information is asked to call police.
