Police on Tuesday released surveillance video of three suspects they're searching for in connection with a home-invasion robbery of four Temple students near the school's campus in North Philadelphia.

The trio followed a female student to her apartment on 18th Street near Berks around 7:30 p.m. Monday, according to police, and forced their way into the building at gunpoint. Once inside, the thugs bound her and her three roommates with duct tape and proceeded to steal laptops, cellphones and cash from the apartment.

The young women managed to free themselves and later alerted authorities, police said.

Tipsters should call 215-686-TIPS (8477), text a tip to PPD TIP (773847), email tips@phillypolice.com or submit a tip online.
