Police are searching for two men who were caught on surveillance video attacking and robbing a man in the Fern Rock section of Philadelphia, according to investigators.

On July 15 at 11 a.m. a 67-year-old man was walking north on 5900 Hutchinson Street when the two suspects ran passed him, investigators said.

One of the suspects then told the victim, "Give me your cell phone," according to officials. The 67-year-old man then ran away as the suspects chased after him. Police say the suspects eventually caught up to the victim and began punching him, causing him to fall to the ground. Surveillance video shows the suspects repeatedly punch and kick the victim on the head and body.

Police say the suspects then took the victim’s cell phone and wallet and fled north on Hutchinson Street. The victim was taken to the Albert Einstein Medical Center where he was treated for his injuries.

Both suspects are described as 20-year-old, thin black men standing 5-foot-11. The first suspect was wearing a white t-shirt and black pants while the second suspect was wearing a dark-colored t-shirt and dark-colored pants.

If you have any information on the incident, please call 911 or 215-686-8477.
