Police are looking for four people who were caught on camera assaulting a 47-year-old man in the frozen food aisle of a Pathmark supermarket on Franklin Mills Boulevard in Northeast Philadelphia.
The disturbing incident happened shortly before 10 p.m. on Saturday. Police said the victim, who appeared to have been grocery shopping, was approached by three unknown men and an unknown woman. One of the men hit him with a glass bottle and when he fell to the floor, the other three people began to kick and punch him.
Investigators said one of the offenders took the victim’s money clip with $100 in cash. All four of the suspects then fled the store in a four-door hatchback, possibly a Chevrolet AVEO.
The first suspect is described as a five-foot-eight-inch Hispanic male, about 20 years old, with pierced ears and a nose ring. He was wearing a baseball hat, blue jacket, t-shirt and tan shorts. The second suspect is described as a six-foot-tall Hispanic male, also about 20 years of age, with glasses, an afro and a goatee wearing a red long-sleeved shirt and tan pants.
The third suspect is described as a five-foot-six-inch Hispanic or Asian male with a stocky build wearing a blue track suit. The fourth suspect is described as a Hispanic female with dark hair that comes to her mid-back, last seen wearing a red coat and jeans.
