PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Homicide detectives say they’re looking for a woman who robbed a 60-year-old man near Temple University Hospital Monday night. The victim later died.

Investigators say the man was attacked as he was walking along the 1300 block of Tioga Street.

Surveillance video shows a woman, who appeared to be pregnant, or with a protruding belly, approach the man, knock him down and steal his wallet.

The victim was later taken to Temple’s Emergency Room where he was pronounced dead about an hour later. There was no word yet on the cause of death, but chief inspector Scott Small says the man may have hit his head after to the falling to the ground.

Investigators say they have gotten a good look at the suspect. She’s described as a dark-skinned woman wearing a dark hooded sweatshirt and pants and she may be pregnant. The suspect was not alone. She was accompanied by a man, but he did not get involved in the attack.
