A Northwest man was robbed near the 100 block of E Walnut Lane, according to a release from the Philadelphia Police Department.

According to reports, the man was walking near Walnut Lane and Bayton Street when he was approached by three men and told to "give up" his gym bag. One of the three robbers reportedly held a knife to his throat while another hit him in the head with his fist.
