Philadelphia police are looking for the suspects who beat and robbed two men in Old City earlier this month.

The incident happened back just before 2 a.m. on April 8 on the unit block of Bank Street.

Surveillance video shows the 24 and 25-year-old victims walking down the street when two armed suspects got out of a newer model Kia Optima parked near the sidewalk and approached them.

One suspect began beating one of the victims in the head and demanding his belongings while the second suspect went through their pockets.
