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.
