(Scroll down for video) A woman was left traumatized after discovering several rats in her home, police in Pennsylvania said.

Philadelphia Police said that they are searching for suspects, who used live rats to get back at someone after a dispute that apparently began with an Instagram photo.

The rodents were discovered inside a house in the 1200 block of South 28th Street. Two women began fighting over a man, and took their fight to social media sites.

It ended with vandalism, assault and dumping live rats in the house of one woman. Just before 11:00 p.m. on Wednesday, police said that a 20-year-old woman, her mother and a group of 8 or 9 other women came to the house of the victim with a baseball bat and a box of rats.

They broke a window using the baseball bat and dumped the rodents into the home. Police said that the 20-year-old suspect also hit the 30-year-old victim and grabbed her purse, which had $200 cash and credit cards.

A family member of the victim was taken to a hospital after suffering a heart attack during the assault. The victim also suffered minor injuries.
