Young punks beat woman, 92, to steal TV, rings in West Philly

A pair of gutless young punks made prey of a 92-year-old woman during an afternoon home-invasion Wednesday in West Philadelphia, police said.

The woman was in her house on Carpenter Street near 62nd around 2 p.m. when police say the two men, described as being between 18 and 20, broke in and beat her about her face.

The men then stole a suitcase, a TV and rings before fleeing on foot through an alleyway.

The woman suffered minor injuries to her face, police said.

The craven duo of thieves remain on the lam. Police described the first suspect as being 5 feet 8 and wearing a black and white shirt and brown pants and the second as wearing a long gray sweatshirt and dark pants.

Anyone with information should contact Southwest Detectives at 215-686-3183.
