Philadelphia Police are looking for the five men in connection with a home invasion and abduction in the Juniata Park section.

It all happened around 4:00 a.m. Monday in the 4000 block of Lawndale Street.

Police say the five masked suspects, dressed all in black, broke into the home through a basement door while three people inside.

A 14-year-old was tied up during the incident. Those ties were still on the front steps as police arrived on the scene.

A 57-year-old woman was bound and pistol-whipped, police say. She was taken to Temple Hospital for head and neck injuries.

An 18-year-old man in the home was abducted by the masked men. He was dropped off less than a mile from the home on East Tioga Street unharmed.

Investigators say they are still not sure why the house was targeted.
