so, police in the 18th district knocked on the door, they were able to get three males from inside of this property. those three males at this time are just persons of interest. >> investigators say city surveillance cameras in the area captured some of the crime. they also want to get video from a private camera outside of a bar. also developing at this hour the search for the masked robber who held up a local 7-eleven at gunpoint. the action cam on the scene in the 5800 block of rising sun avenue in the crescentville section of philadelphia. the robber stole $200. no one was physically hurt. >> detectives are also questioned several -- several men in center city in the center city rape vision and only "action news" was there as police raided a home in south philadelphia. katherine scott is live with the latest on that investigation and what brought police to that home. katherine. >> reporter: erin, police say they have been aggressively pursuing this case and yesterday it did take -- they did take several

chances and exposure, being seen by others, the fact that he would enter a property where there are multiple occupants, the fact that he would remain there and possibly return a second time says something about the boldness. >> and so far no charges have been filed in this case and police are not commenting yet on this rape or on the men they took into custody. we're live in hunting park, katherine scott, channel 6 "action news." >> thanks so much, katherine. our coverage of the attack continues on the 6abc news app. there you'll find updates on the investigation. in addition we've posted surveillance video of the suspect. the 6abc news app is free for apple and android devices. >> police are looking for the vandals who spray painted swat particular cas on a synagogue in rhawnhurst. crews power washed the mark. the vandalism was noticed by

of sunshine across most of the region. as we take a look at sky 6, but as we get later into the afternoon, there's the chance of additional clouds start to build in. a couple highlights to today's forecast. the first involves today. it's still going to be fairly decent out there, maybe a bit more humid than yesterday but not oppressive and you can still get out there and get things done. on wednesday there is the chance at times anyway during the afternoon of some drenchers developing, okay. so let's starter with today. 68 degrees this morning as you head out the door. dewpoints for now are still below that humid thresholds of 60 degrees which is nice. winds are light out of the southwest at three. of course that southwesterly direction is where you tend to dig in a little bit of additional humid air. there are some more clouds across pennsylvania today, so even though we'll see some sunshine early i think as the day goes on there's the chance that it gets cloudier and cloudier. a little sprinkle activity and shower activity in western pennsylvania. not really expecting that to be much of an issue for us today, maybe late tonight somebody gets a stray shower. 85 is your high this afternoon at the airport, 70 degrees by 8 o'clock.
so, we'll already be starting feel a bit warm by 8 o'clock. by 11:00 77 that will warmer. that high of 85 probably around 4 o'clock and then back to about 84 degrees by 5 o'clock with perhaps a few more clouds digging in during the afternoon. high temperatures pretty similar away from the shore. 82 in millville, 84 in allentown, 85 in reading. right now at the shore perhaps a couple degrees warmer than yesterday. still not a bad day. sun probably giving way to a few more clouds as the day goes on, maybe a bit humid but of course right down on the beach that usually doesn't bother you much. if you're leaded to the ball game tonight a-decent flight for baseball, might feel a little stickier than last night, i think you at any stay dry, 80 degrees for the first pitch, 74 in the ninth inning phillies taking on the marlins. tomorrow more clouds in the morning. by lunchtime there could be a couple showers filtering in and as a cold front comes in from the west we'll be on the lookout for some scattered but drenching downpour producing thunderstorms and showers later in the day and at night,
okay but you could start to see some shower activity as soon as about lunchtime tomorrow. 85 degrees ishigh and your exclusive accuweather 7-day a mix of sun with a chance of some increasing clouds. i think we're probably dry for both the phillies tonight and the union who are at home continuing their hopeful march toward the u.s. cup. and then on wednesday, humid, eighty six degrees. a lot more humid. you'll definitely feel it in the morning and then in the afternoon you'll get some showers and perhaps a couple drenching thunderstorms t and then on thursday, it now looks like there could be a lingering shower in there morning but then some drying in the afternoon with a high of 87. friday still warm, 88 degrees. wow. and then on saturday, looks like we ease back to 85 and on sunday 84. both saturday and sunday there's a slight chance of a pop-up shower, perhaps a passing thunderstorm here or there. probably a better chance sunday than saturday. but neither day looks like a washout. >> okay. thanks so much, david. >> thank you, david. >> yup. >> new this morning a young man staggered for help after he was shot. the quarterback killer opened fire with an assault weapon possibly an ak-47 in
