Three Dudes Dress Up as Utility Workers, Terrorize Philly Couple

Well this is mildly terrifying. Three guys posing as utility workers, wearing bright green t-shirts and red and orange caps, allegedly stormed into and burglarized the home of a North Philly couple. But not before doing this:

“And by terrorize, I mean they actually went in there, they had flex cuffs, they tied both their hands and their ankles, and started pistol whipping them. They were all armed – they had guns – and they actually started pistol whipping them,” explained Philadelphia police Captain George Fuchs.

Incidentally, a PECO robot left me an “urgent” message on my cell phone this morning. But was it really PECO? I think I’ve found my reason not to find out. [6 ABC]
