Pittsburgh police said a woman who was sexually assaulted during a home invasion early Tuesday morning fought back and chased the men out of her home with a knife.
According to police, the incident happened just after midnight at a home on East Hills Drive.
Investigators said the victims, a 37-year-old man and a 27-year-old woman, were dropped off at their home around 12:10 a.m. As they were opening the door, the victims said two black men wearing masks came up from behind them and forced them into the house at gunpoint.
Once inside, police said the intruders pistol-whipped the male victim. Investigators said the male victim also suffered injuries after he fell down a flight of stairs while trying to fight the suspects off.
Detectives said the female victim was taken to an upstairs room where one of the intruders bound her hands and feet with tape, pistol-whipped and sexually assaulted her. Police said the woman was able to free herself and chased the men with a knife as they ran out of the house.
Police said the woman suffered injuries to her face, head and upper body. Both victims were taken to UPMC Presbyterian Hospital with serious injuries. Their conditions have not been released.
Investigators said the men got away with $200. So far, no arrests have been made.
Neighbors told Channel 11’s Cara Sapida that they’re beginning to not feel safe in their neighborhood.
"East Hills is going down. It's getting terrible, and it's not safe. It's terrible," one neighbor said. "I happened to see police cars there, and we didn't stop to look; we just kept going. I wish they'd find them."
