2 Sought In Washington Square Beating Caught On Video

Posted: Updated:
PHILADELPHIA -

Police are seeking the public's help to identify two suspects wanted in connection with a beating and robbery caught on video in Washington Square.

A 36-year-old man was walking on the 200 block of South Camac Street back on Nov. 10 at 2 a.m. when he appeared to be having a verbal argument, police say.

That's when the video shows one suspect punching the victim from behind, knocking him to the ground.

The second suspect then went over to the injured victim and continued to punch him in the face several times while police say he was unconscious.

That suspect took the victim's wallet, cell phone and gold with diamond necklace, then ran off in an unknown direction.

Both suspects were described as white males. No approximate ages were given. The first was wearing a red, white and blue coat, dark-colored pants and shoes and holding a flashlight. The second suspect had short hair and wore glasses, a dark-colored dress coat, blue jeans and brown shoes.

If you see these suspects, police say do not approach them; call 9-1-1 immediately. To submit a tip, call 215-686-TIPS (8477), text to PPD TIP (773847), or use this electronic form to do so anonymously.

    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.
