    Police say the 54-year-old victim was on the 5200 block of Frankford Avenue on Friday around 6:40 p.m. when he was approached by a 42-year-old man and a 25-year-old man.

    Police say one man stabbed the victim in the mouth with a broken bottle while the second man held him down and went through his pockets, stealing $26. The two men then fled the scene.
