Philadelphia Police search for men who held up cab driver

- Philadelphia Police say they are looking for 3 men who held up a cab driver.

It happened on Thursday at a busy Philadelphia intersection at the height of the rush hour. The cab driver, Joseph Dechelin, says he was robbed and that this is the second time he has been a target of violence.  
Dechelin says that he picked up the three men in South Philadelphia and dropped them off at 16th and Sansom. Two of the men went to each side of the cab and the third attacker started hitting the cab driver through the middle partition.  
As the one robber hit him, another told the cab driver to give them everything, according to the driver.
The robbers managed to steal $110 from the cab driver. At some point, the attack ended and the three suspects disappeared into the crowded city streets.
