7-Eleven armed robber sought

An armed rob­ber who struck at a Park­wood con­veni­ence store on Aug. 18 re­mains on the loose, Phil­adelphia po­lice said.

The masked crook entered the 7-El­ev­en at 3224 By­berry Road at about 11 p.m., poin­ted a hand­gun at a clerk be­hind a counter and an­nounced a rob­bery, po­lice said. The em­ploy­ee sur­rendered an un­dis­closed amount of cash from the re­gister.

The un­known rob­ber was last seen flee­ing the store south­bound on Academy Road. Po­lice did not spe­cify if he was on foot or in a vehicle.

The ban­dit was de­scribed as white, about 30 years old, 5 feet 9 inches tall and about 175 pounds. He wore a blue/gray hooded jack­et, blue jeans and black sneak­ers. Au­thor­it­ies con­sider him armed and dan­ger­ous.
