Police released surveillance footage Wednesday of a mugging in Center City last month in an attempt to identify the suspects.

The victim, a 36-year-old male, was walking near 200 S. Camac St. south of Walnut Street in the Washington Square neighborhood about 2 a.m. Nov. 10 when he was attacked and robbed by two suspects.

The first suspect spoke to the victim while the second suspect came up from behind and punched him in the head. Then the first suspect also punched the victim several times until he was unconscious, police said.

The suspects took the victim’s wallet, watch and gold with diamond necklace, then fled in an unknown direction.

The first suspect is described as a white male wearing a red, white and blue coat with dark pants and shoes.

The second suspect is described as a white male with short hair, wearing glasses, a dark coat, blue jeans and brown shoes.
