Home Invaders Torture Woman With Hot Knife

From http://www.nbcphiladelphia.com, November 9, 2013 by Lauren DiSanto

Philadelphia Police are searching for two suspects who invaded a home in the Oxford Circle section of the city and attacked one of the women inside with a hot knife.

“They were literally torturing her with a hot knife while she was tied up, demanding money,” said Chief Inspector Scott Small.

Police say the men stormed into the home on the 1500 block of Rosalie Street around 7:00 p.m. and tied up two women and an electrician, who just happened to be inside the home at the time. Two kids were also inside the home.

Police say the men burned the 28-year-old woman with a knife that had been heated up on a stove, holding it against her forehead, arms and stomach after she refused to give up any money.

Then, investigators say they picked up her 2-year-old daughter and threatened to kill her if they weren’t given money.

NBC10 talked with the electrician, who was also attacked. “I had the broomstick in my hand, I started poking them with broomstick like 3 or 4 times. Then I was tossing with him and then after tossing with him, the other guy came who had the gun with him, he cracked me across the side of my face, across back of my head,” said Tariq Adham.

Police say the men got away with $3,000 to $4,000 cash. They were both wearing black hoodies and authorities say one of them was masked.
