Robbery Suspects Remain At Large Somewhere in Philadelphia
According to police, after they got what they wanted from the victim, two men headed to south on the 5th street toward Tasker Street. That’s where they were seen last time.
Surveillance cameras from nearby businesses spotted the two suspects attacking the 29-year-old man. Therefore, the police at least have some sort off physical description to go off of. Combined with the victim’s account of the events, the police should theoretically be able to catch the perpetrators. However, that doesn’t mean that they couldn’t use the public’s help.
