Armed intruders break into college dorm in Pennsylvania

Police in Pennsylvania are investigating how three gun-toting intruders got past a security official and into a Kutztown University dormitory early Friday morning.

Around 1:45 a.m., three men, two of which had guns, made their way into the dorm and knocked on one of the resident's doors, officials said.

When a student answered the knock, the assailants, dressed head to toe in black, forced their way into the room, police told NBCPhiladelphia.com.

The dorm invaders struck one of the students, searched the room, then fled without taking anything, according to school officials.

In order to get to the room, the men needed to get by a security officer at the building’s front desk and a key card is needed to open the outside door.

“These individuals bullied their way in and made their way to this particular room,” Matt Santos, a Kutztown University spokesman, told NBC Philadelphia. “It was definitely a breach of security.”

Officials at the school of some 9,000 undergraduates, located in western Pennsylvania, say the intruders likely targeted the dormroom and it was not a random act.

Police are offering a $5,000 reward for information about the break in.
