Two suspects attacked and robbed the owner/operators of a local Chinese food restaurant overnight.

The husband and wife were beaten during the robbery inside HuaLai Chinese Restaurant along the 5100 block of Walnut Street in West Philadelphia around 1 a.m. Monday.

Philadelphia Police officers on the scene told NBC10 that the first suspect scoped out the scene inside while his accomplice stood watch outside, waiting for the unidentified husband to return from a delivery to strike. As the owner returned to the store and opened the enclosed back area, the suspect began punching him in the face.

After beating the husband the suspect then pistol-whipped the wife, according to investigators.

The other suspect then came into the store, helped steal about $500 dollars and then fled that store with the armed suspect, according to police.
