PHILADELPHIA (AP):

Police have charged three teen boys with the fatal beating death of a 57-year-old homeless man in Philadelphia.

The teens were taken into custody Sunday and charges were released yesterday.

Police were responding to reports of a robbery in progress on Novmber 26 when they found Kevin Cullen on the ground unconscious with his pockets empty.

One resident who lives nearby said she heard a group of teens laughing as they ran away from Cullen.

The man was transported to a nearby hospital, and he died from his injuries the next day.

Fourteen-year-old Brandon Conrad and 16-year-old Malik Page face murder, robbery and related charges in Cullen's death. Seventeen-year-old Emmanuel Harris is charged with attempted murder, aggravated assault, robbery, and related offenses.

No attorney information is available for the teens, who are charged as adults.
