Police are looking for two suspects who allegedly broke into a home in North Philadelphia.

It happened around 3 a.m. Saturday on the 1500 block of West Thompson Street.

A 23-year-old victim says he was asleep inside his home when he was awakened by an unknown male pointing a gun at him.

He said the suspect made him disable the Find My iPhone app on his cell phone and laptop.

The suspect heard the victim's roommate enter the home, causing him to flee the scene.

The 23-year-old roommate told police he was returning home, and noticed the front door open.

He came into the house and heard footsteps upstairs.

He yelled upstairs, and that's when the suspect ran down the steps and allegedly pointed a handgun at him.

The suspect then fled the house.

The roommate told police he then heard another set of footsteps coming down the stairs.

He thought everyone was gone, and yelled upstairs again.

The second suspect then ran down the steps, allegedly pointing a gun at him, before fleeing the house.

The victim then ran downstairs and told his roommate that they had been robbed.

The suspects got away with the victim's cell phone, laptop and a wallet containing various IDs.

The resident was not hurt.
