PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- A 25-year-old man has been arrested and charged following two home invasion robberies near Temple University's campus.
According to police, Nasir Johnson was arrested Monday night and is charged with theft, kidnapping, burglary, robbery and other related crimes.
Officers said Johnson has been charged in connection with two similar incidents in recent weeks.
The most recent crime happened Monday at about 6:20 a.m. on the 1900 block of North 18th Street in North Philadelphia.
Four people, including two male Temple students, were inside the home at the time.
They said they woke up to guns in their faces and were told to hand over their belongings.
Police say the armed thieves stole several iPhones, Apple Watches and other tech equipment. The suspects also stole a gun and a 2022 Black Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross, which has since been recovered.
The second crime happened on November 11 when two masked and armed men robbed Temple students in their home.
According to police, 11 sleeping students were rounded up and robbed of laptops, cellphones, debit cards and a car on the 1300 block of North 15th Street.
