PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Philadelphia police say three Temple University students have been robbed by armed intruders who broke into their off-campus home.

Police believe the two suspects got into the home through an unlocked kitchen window about 1 a.m. Wednesday.

The students told police the robbers had a gun and a knife and forced them to lie on the floor while they were robbed.

The suspects stole cellphones, laptop computers, tablet computers, debit cards and some cash.

The students were then forced into the basement of the home before the suspects escaped. The students weren’t injured. One pulled a fire alarm to summon emergency responders after the robbery.
