PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Authorities are seeking a group of teenagers who assaulted an 11-year-old boy at gunpoint near a north Philadelphia playground last month.

Police on Wednesday released surveillance footage of one of the suspects in the July 12 attack in Olney.

Investigators say the boy was playing basketball at the playground when four male teenagers began chasing him.

The suspects, described as about 14 or 15 years old, cornered the boy in a nearby alley, pulled a handgun, forced him to take off his clothes and punched him.

Police said the reason for the attack is unknown. They are asking anyone with information to contact the special victim’s unit.
