Disabled veteran robbed in Philly home invasion

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Philadelphia police are seeking for six suspects who beat and robbed a disabled war veteran during a home invasion.

It happened early Monday in northeast Philadelphia. Police say that just after midnight the suspects came to the man’s door and he buzzed them in because he thought they knew them.

Police say the 58-year-old Marine, who is bedridden, was then dragged from his bed and beaten while a gun was held to his head. The suspects stole a TV, cash, jewelry and the man’s medication before fleeing.

The victim was treated at scene for cuts and bruises.

The suspects are being sought and no arrests were immediately announced.
