Man shot in robbery attempt

A man was shot in West Philly Friday night after an attempted robbery, police said.

The man was followed by another man who demanded that the victim give up his property as he walked on North 64th Street toward Callowhill at about 11:30 p.m.

After the victim ignored the demand, two shots rang out. The man was shot twice in the upper back. Police said the victim dashed down 64th Street to Hirst Street near Master where he collapsed.

Medics arrived to the scene and rushed the victim to the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, where he was in stable condition.

 The thug fled northbound along Race Street.
