Two men have been arrested after a reported home invasion in the South Side Flats. At 2:31 a.m. on Dec. 28, Zone 3 Officers were called to the 2900 block of Harcum Way for a report that a man called 911 and stated he had a gun to his head and was not allowed to leave the house.

The officers discovered the rear door of the residence wide open and the victims, four adults and two children, were still inside. The victims were unharmed.
