    Police are searching for three teens who they say beat and robbed a 13-year-old boy in South Philadelphia.

    On May 6, around 4 p.m., the young victim was at the corner of 11th Street and Oregon Avenue waiting for a bus. Suddenly, police say, three teen boys approached him from behind and pushed him to the ground.

    The teens allegedly kicked and punched the victim several times before stealing a black iPhone 5 from his pocket. They then fled the scene and were last seen heading north on 11th Street.

    Police released surveillance video of the three suspects before and after the attack.

    The suspects are described as three teen boys between 15 and 16 years of age, standing between 5-foot-5 and 5-foot-7 and weighing 140 pounds. Police also say the suspects were wearing light blue polo shirts and navy blue pants.
