READING, Pa. (AP) - Two people have been arrested and two others are being sought for repeatedly beating a homeless man as he slept inside an eastern Pennsylvania laundromat.

The owner of the laundromat told Reading police that the homeless man was permitted inside to rest on bitterly cold nights. On Jan. 12, the man was sleeping when four people from a nearby bar came in and beat him.

Surveillance cameras released by police Thursday show the group returning four more times, each time kicking and punching the motionless man as he lay on the floor.

Police have arrested 26-year-old Keith Allison and 21-year-old Ana Ferrer-Reyes, both of Reading. Authorities hope releasing the surveillance video will lead them to the other two suspects.

The victim was taken to Reading Hospital. His condition is unknown.
