Congressman Bob Brady’s wife scared off three masked men who may have been trying to break into the couple’s Philadelphia home today.
She was watching television when it happened. She knew something was up, police say, when the TV went dead. Police tell us her phone and cable lines were cut.
When she was trying to figure out what was going on, she looked out a window in the back of the house and saw two men sitting on the family’s lawn furniture and then the third man banging on a window. She banged back and yelled, “What do you want?” and that apparently scared the guys off.
Brady’s wife called police right away. She told them all three men had on surgical masks and black hoodies and that she wouldn’t be able to identify any of them. Nothing was taken from the house or yard and police tell us they do not think Brady’s house was targeted for any reason related to him being a politician.
Brady’s house is in the Green Hill Farms neighborhood.
