Man Beaten Outside Philadelphia Liquor Store

Philadelphia Police are searching for two tow truck riders who were caught on surveillance video beating a man outside a Juniata liquor store.

The beating happened August 17 outside the Fine Wine and Good Spirits shop along the 1300 block of Erie Avenue, city detectives said Friday.

The 60-year-old victim was about to walk into the store when two men jumped out of a black tow truck and approached him. He was hit in the head from behind with an unknown object and then punched and kicked several times after falling to the ground.

The man was taken to Hahnemann University Hospital for a laceration to his head, police said.

Detectives believe the assault was random and are looking for help in identifying the suspects.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Philadelphia Police tipline at 215.686.TIPS.
