The Allegheny County Medical Examiner's Office is seeking the public's help in identifying a man killed in a home invasion in Penn Hills on Wednesday.

Allegheny County Police said the deceased was one of three men who forced their way into a home on Edinberg Drive and struggled with residents. The homeowner fatally stabbed the man in the back, police said.

The man didn't have any identification on him, police said, and a check of his fingerprints yielded no results, according to an employee with the medical examiner's office.

He described the man as a black man in his 20s, between 5 feet 11 and 6 feet tall, weighing 168 pounds with a goatee, mustache and slight facial hair, and a short hair cut. He wore blue jeans with black rear pockets and black tennis shoes.

Anyone with information on his identity is asked to call the office at 412-350-4800.
