Police are investigating a robbery that left a 40-year-old man with a gunshot wound to the foot near 46th and Walnut streets in West Philadelphia shortly before 11 p.m.

The victim was transported to the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania and listed in stable condition, police said. Lt. John Walker of the Southwest Detective Division said his wallet, containing cash, credit cards and his identification, was taken in the robbery.

The suspects are described as two black men between the ages of 15 and 20. One was wearing a black-and-white-striped shirt and armed with a 9mm handgun, and the other was wearing a gray shirt, Walker said. They fled on foot north on 46th Street, then east on Walnut.
