PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Police have arrested three juveniles in connection with an attack at a north Philadelphia gas station that critically injured a homeless man earlier this month.

Officials said the three face juvenile charges of attempted murder, aggravated and simple assault and related offenses.

Three women were earlier arrested and charged with attempted murder in the April 7 beating at the Sunoco station in the Olney section of the city.

Investigators said the assault happened after a boy reported getting into a dispute with the man while both were trying to pump gas for customers for spare change.

Surveillance video shows a half-dozen people jumping out of a minivan and attacking the 51-year-old man with a hammer, mace and a piece of wood, and punching and kicking him.
