Two suspects sought in Wawa carjacking

Po­lice are look­ing for a man and a wo­man who wanted a ride badly enough to steal one.

Two men were sit­ting in their car in the park­ing lot at a Castor Av­en­ue Wawa store at 4:49 a.m. Sunday when a man ap­proached them from the driver’s side and de­man­ded a ride while a wo­man stood nearby.

When the men in the car re­fused, the oth­er man pulled out a hand­gun and poin­ted it at them while de­mand­ing their money, jew­elry, phones and a jack­et. The armed man and the wo­man then fled in the vic­tims’ 1996 dark blue Toyota Co­rolla north on the 4500 block of Castor.

Po­lice have re­leased store sur­veil­lance pho­tos of the man and wo­man.

Po­lice said the armed man was His­pan­ic and 25 to 27 years old. He stood 5 feet 10 inches to 6 feet tall and weighed 200 pounds. He was wear­ing a black hooded sweat shirt with white writ­ing as well as gray or black sweat pants.

The wo­man who was with him was His­pan­ic and 25 years old. She weighed 115 pounds and was wear­ing a dark gray jack­et and blue jeans.

The stolen car had tin­ted win­dows.

Po­lice are ask­ing any­one who has any in­form­a­tion about this crime to call 911, call 215-686-TIPS (8477) or De­tect­ive Hughes at North­east De­tect­ives, 215-686-3153 or 54. ••
