Police are searching for a gunman accused in a home invasion Friday in Shaler.

The man, who was armed with a handgun, entered the home on Seavey Road and demanded money from the resident, township police said. The gunman fled with the woman's purse at 2:45 p.m., police said.

The man is described as white, in his 30s, about 5 feet, 6 inches tall with medium build and short hair. He was wearing khaki shorts.

After running out of the house, police said, he got into a red station wagon with tinted windows and a possible license plate HTX-6159. A second person was in the vehicle but no description was available.

Anyone with information is asked to call 911.
