Man charged in Temple home invasion

Police have identified the man charged in Sunday's home invasion near the Temple University campus as 19-year-old Jamar Trusty. Trusty lives on the 1700 block of N. 16th Street, police said, which is just a few blocks away from the house that was targeted in the armed robbery.

Investigators are still looking for two other men believed to have been involved in the invasion. One was described by police as a black man, 18 to 25 years old with a chubby build. He was wearing a dark hooded shirt. The other was a black man seen wearing a brown shirt with white lettering.

Police also have charged Temple student Massimo Pulcini with possession with intent to distribute. Investigators believe Pulcini, 21 was selling marijuana out of the house on the 1500 block of Page Street, and that the activity drew the attention of Trusty and the other gunmen, who watched the house before bursting in with guns.
