Cops: 3 bat-wielding crooks rob man in Bustleton

Three thugs armed with bats robbed a 22-year-old man in Bustleton on Monday night, police said.

The victim was on his way home walking on Grant Avenue near Krewstown Road at 10:27 p.m. when he was approached by three men in their 20s, authorities said.

Police said one man walked toward the victim swinging two small bats while another told the man to give up his belongings or get killed.
