By Liz Navratil

Police responded to a robbery and a separate home invasion in Oakland yesterday.

City police said they are looking for two men suspected of a home invasion that occurred around 12:30 p.m. yesterday near Wellsford and Zulema streets. The suspects are a black man who is about 6-foot-1, 220 pounds and wore a baseball cap with a black ski mask and a white man who looked about 25 years old, 5-foot-10 and 165 pounds. The white man wore a green, two-toned hoodie.

Six people were at home at the time of the home invasion, and none appeared to be hurt.

City police said that Pitt police were handling the robbery, which occurred around 4 or 5 p.m. Pitt police declined to comment, referring all questions to their public information officer who would not be available until this morning.

City police said they did not think the two incidents were connected. They said they did not know whether the victims were Pitt students.
