A 6-year-old answered the door to three thugs who forced their way into a home at gunpoint in Northeast Philadelphia’s Bustleton section Tuesday afternoon, police said.
The home-invasion happened on Jamison Avenue near Sctochbrook Drive shortly after 2 p.m., according to police. When the intruders forced their way in, a struggle with a 27-year-old man inside the house ensued.
The man was pistol-whipped, but managed to get the gun off one of the men, police said.
The man then fired at the intruders, police said, but they were unsure around 4 p.m. if anyone was hit.
