Hat­field po­lice are ask­ing for the pub­lic’s help in the in­ves­ti­ga­tion of an as­sault and rob­bery that oc­curred in the town­ship.

Po­lice re­sponded to the 3100 block of Penn Street around 10:30 p.m. Fri­day, Aug. 25, and spoke to a fe­male who re­ported be­ing at­tacked by two men while walk­ing home from work by her­self, ac­cord­ing to a press re­lease from town­ship po­lice.

Po­lice say the fe­male de­scribed the men as be­ing in their 20s or

30s and wear­ing dark cloth­ing. She was thrown to the ground and robbed, ac­cord­ing to po­lice. The men then fled on foot, and the fe­male

con­tacted an area res­i­dent who called 911, po­lice said.

The vic­tim was treated and re­leased at Abing­tonLans­dale Hospi­tal, ac­cord­ing to po­lice.

“Hat­field de­tec­tives are work­ing are work­ing with both the vic­tim and with ev­i­dence re­cov­ered at the

scene to help iden­tify th­ese sus­pects,” the press re­lease states.

Any­one who wit­nessed sus­pi­cious ac­tiv­ity in the area at the time of the rob­bery can con­tact po­lice at 215-855-0903 or email po­licetips@hat­field­town­ship. org.
