Two arrests have been made in connection with a home invasion and robbery of four Temple students west of Main Campus Monday night, Officer Christine O’Brien, a police spokeswoman, said.

The names of the suspects have not been released and police are still seeking a third, but O’Brien said police know who that suspect is.

On Monday, three men, two of which were armed, followed a Temple student to her off-campus apartment around 7:30 p.m. on 1800 block of North 18th Street and forced their way into the apartment. The student and her three roommates were bound with duct tape while  cash, cell phones, computers and credit cards were stolen from the second-floor apartment, police said.
