Police seek 3 men in robbery, assault at Warwick Hotel in Center City

Philadelphia police are seeking the public's help in identifying three men who robbed and assaulted a 27-year-old man at the Warwick Hotel in Center City on Thanksgiving Day.

The victim, who was staying at the hotel, at 220 S. 17th Street, knew one of the suspects by the name of Terry, police said. He allowed Terry and two other men, whom the victim did not know, into his room that morning after Terry called him at about 9 a.m. A short time later, police said, the three men pulled out handguns and ordered the victim to go into the bathroom, where they tied him up and demanded money and the code to the safe.

One of the robbers then hit the victim in the forehead with a handgun, knocking him unconscious, police said. When the victim woke up, he noticed his cellphone, $375 and a gold chain were taken, and that the suspects had fled.

Anyone with information about the suspects is asked to call the Central Detective Division at 215-686-3093 or submit a tip online.

Terry is described as white, about 30 years old, 5-foot-11, 175 pounds and bald. He was wearing red shoes and may frequent the area of 12th and Walnut Streets.

The second suspect is described as a white man, about 28 years old, about 5-foot-8 and 150 pounds, with reddish hair and a beard. The third man is described as black, about 28 years old, about 5-foot-11 and 190 lbs, with short dreadlocks in a ponytail and gold teeth.
