Teens Beat, Rob Man Then Leave Him for Dead, Philadelphia Police Say

UPDATE: Three teens were taken into custody in the beating death of Kevin Cullen.

A group of teens robbed a man then left him for dead along a Northeast Philadelphia street, Philadelphia Police said.

The teens beat the man just before 6 p.m. Sunday along Loring Street near Frankford Avenue. They left him bleeding from his nose and unconscious, with his pockets turned out, police said.

Medics rushed the man, later identified as Kevin Cullen of Southampton Road, to the hospital where he died Monday morning.

Responding officers learned that a group of teens in dark clothing, one in camouflage, was seen walking away from the scene, investigators said. Officers caught up to two teenagers about a half mile away on Torresdale Avenue.

As of Tuesday morning, no one was under arrest, however, or facing charges, police said.
