PHILADELPHIA -

Philadelphia Police are searching for three men and a woman who they say cornered a Pathmark shopper, struck him with a glass bottle then stole a money clip from him that had $100.

Surveillance video of the incident, which happened on September 29th just before 10 p.m., shows the three men and a woman approach a 47-year-old man at the Franklin Mills Boulevard Pathmark.

Police say after one of the suspects hit the man, the others kicked and punched him.

One of the suspects can then be seen on surveillance video taking the man's money clip and running out of the store.

Police say the group took off in a four-door hatchback, possibly a Chevrolet "AVEO."

If you have any information about the incident, you're asked to call police at 215-686-TIPS (8477) or by text, 773847.

    NICE EASTER WEEKEND

    The first half of the holiday weekend has been great and Easter Sunday looks just as nice. Clouds thin out late tonight with temperatures falling back to the 40s.

    Initially it'll be jacket weather early Sunday morning but plenty of sunshine will warm us into the 60s by afternoon.  High temperatures will be a few degrees cooler than Saturday.

    It will be noticeably cooler and breezy at the shore with highs in the low 50s.  Quiet conditions continue into Monday.
