Police have jailed two men and are looking for a third who they said broke into a woman's lower Frankford apartment and sexually assaulted her before stealing her money and jewelry, said Capt. John Darby of the Special Victims Unit.
Darby said the assailants in this "vicious attack" were so bold they "made themselves quite at home" for two or three hours, eating food and having drinks while they kept the 26-year-old victim subdued at gunpoint.
Yesterday morning, Greg Reese, 20, of the 5700 block of North 20th Street, surrendered to police. Also charged was Earl Hall, 20, of the 7200 block of Rupert Street, who was in police custody on another charge. Both men, who have criminal records, have been charged with robbery, indecent assault, conspiracy, firearms violations and related offenses.
"They're off the street," Darby said. "Efforts continue to identify and apprehend the third male suspect."
Early on the morning of May 19, Darby said, Hall entered the apartment in the 2100 block of Castor Avenue through a rear window and let the other two men inside.
When the victim woke up, the trio demanded money, jewelry, other valuables and drugs, Darby said. They took $200, jewelry and the victim's cell phone, he said.
Darby said that among the evidence, investigators found fingerprints and were able to track activity on the cell phone.
Later on the day of the assault, Hall was pulled over for a motor-vehicle offense and taken into custody because he was wanted for a parole violation. Reese was in the car, Darby said, but was let go.
The men are also under investigation for similar crimes in the Northeast and other parts of the city, Darby said.
