PHILADELPHIA -

Charges were filed Thursday for two of the suspects accused of tying up four Temple University students and robbing them.

The Philadelphia District Attorney's Office says it has charged Tyree Johnson, 19, and 18-year-old Malcolm Murray in connection with Monday's home invasion in an off-campus apartment on the 1800 block of North 18th Street.

The two face Aggravated Assault, Robbery, Burglary and other related charges, the district attorney's office said.

The two were arraigned Wednesday night and bail was set at $800,000 each.

On Monday night, shortly after 7:30 p.m., police responded to a report of a home invasion where a man followed a female student home and forced her into her apartment. Police say three men then tied her up and three of her roommates with duct tape and stole cash, cell phones and other electronics.

Surveillance images were released not long after the incident that showed the three men police say were involved.
