PHILADELPHIA — Police say a group of men stole four vehicles from a car rental company during an early morning heist at the Philadelphia International Airport.

Authorities say four men stormed the airport’s Avis car rental location at around 4 a.m. Friday and punched a guard in the face before stealing the cars.

One of the suspects displayed a handgun and also stole the guard’s cellphone.

Police say they don’t know which direction the men went with the silver Nissan Altima, tan Ford Edge, silver Chevy Impala and black Chevy Cruze.
