Group sought after violent robbery in West Philadelphia

- Police are looking for a group of people following an attack and robbery on a man in West Philadelphia last week.

The incident occurred back on May 17, around 1:30 a.m. outside of a Chinese restaurant on the 4100 block of Lancaster Avenue.

Investigators have released surveillance footage that shows the suspects inside of the restaurant before the victim passes by. At that time, a group of people leaves the restaurant following the victim down the street.

That’s when police say two people from the group attacked and robbed the victim, with three others looking on. Officers arrived on the scene a short time later and found the victim suffering from multiple injuries. He was transported to a nearby hospital.

Police are still looking to identify and locate the two alleged attackers, as well as the bystanders. Anyone with information is asked to contact Philadelphia Police.
