Homeowner, suspect injured in Spring Garden home invasion

PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- A homeowner and a suspect were injured during an armed home invasion in the Spring Garden section of Philadelphia.

The home invasion happened along the 900 block of Green Street around 9:30 p.m. Thursday.

"We just heard a lot of loud banging," said one neighbor who chose not to give his name.

The commotion the man was hearing was the home invasion happening right next door.

Police said two men held a 30-year-old woman and 55-year-old man at gunpoint as they were entering the home.

They forced themselves inside and assaulted the man, police said.

According to police, the perpetrators then got their hands on some cash and electronics.

But the two gunman didn't move fast enough.

"After some time we thought, 'oh my God, this is real?'" the neighbor said. "After a while, we looked outside of the window and there were actually like 10 cops."

More than a dozen police officers were waiting outside the home.

One suspect was taken straight to Central Detectives.

The other would first make a stop at Hahnemann University Hospital. Action News was there as he was taken in handcuffs to be treated for what looked like an injury to his head.

Both the suspect and the homeowner received minor injuries, though police have not explained what led to those injuries.

The investigation continues.
