Cops need help catching this loser

Police are seeking the public's help to identify the larcenous loser who attacked a man in North Philly last month, beating him viciously before fleeing with the victim's cash, cell phone and wallet.

The assault happened at 8:35pm on May 11 on Germantown Avenue near Allegheny, police said. After punching and kicking his prey repeatedly, the robber fled on foot east on Roy Street. He is described as a heavyset black, 5-feet-10, 280 pounds, wearing a white shirt, black leather vest and white-trimmed black shorts.

Tipsters can call 9-1-1 or (215) 686-TIPS (8477).

See video of the incident here. (And prepare to be annoyed by all the bystanders and passing motorists - including a Philadelphia Fire Department ambulance - who do nothing to intervene.)
