SOUTHWEST PHILADELPHIA (WTXF) - Four suspects have been charged in the violent robbery and carjacking of a pizza deliveryman in Southwest Philadelphia last week.

The victim was taken to Presbyterian Hospital after he suffered severe head injuries. He was unconscious for several days following the incident.
