January 21, 2017 10:21 AM

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Philadelphia Police are investigating a home invasion and sexual assault in Chestnut Hill.

It happened around 4 a.m. in the unit block of Chestnut Hill Avenue.

Police say an armed man entered the home through an unlocked door. Once inside, he made his way to the bedroom, where police say he forced a 56-year old woman to perform a sexual act on him at gunpoint while commanding her husband to stay in bed. At one point the suspect put his gun down and the victim was able to grab it. She tried to shoot the suspect, but the weapon wouldn’t fire.

Authorities say the suspect grabbed the couple’s wallets, a cell phone, and keys, and then fled in their 2017 Hyundai Elantra, as the victims called 911.

No arrests have been made.

Anyone with information on the suspect is asked to contact police.

A gunman broke into a house in Chestnut Hill early Saturday and sexually assaulted a woman in front of her husband, police said.

The attack happened in the bedroom of a house on East Chestnut Hill Avenue about 4:30 a.m., according to investigators. The unidentified attacker entered the room, holding a handgun, and forced the woman out of the bed.

He ordered the woman's husband, who was sleeping in the bed, not to move while he sexually assaulted his wife, police said. At some point, the attacker put down the gun and the woman grabbed it, according to investigators. She tried to shoot it, but it didn't fire. Officials say it was actually a fake gun.

The woman's husband then called police to report a rape in progress. That's when the attacker fled the house. He took the couple's vehicle as well as wallets and a cell phone, police said.

The suspect is described as a black male, 18 to 25 years old, 5-foot-7, clean shaven and wearing a black hoodie and black pants. If you have any information on the incident, please call Philadelphia Police.
