Sur­veil­lance photo

A Hal­loween-style armed rob­ber struck for a fourth time at the same Ox­ford Circle con­veni­ence store on Nov. 26.

For the second time, the gun­man wore a Scream-face mask as he held up the Wawa at 6460 Bustleton Ave. on Nov. 26. The heist oc­curred at about 3:24 a.m. when the rob­ber poin­ted a gun at a clerk and de­man­ded money from the cash re­gisters. The rob­ber fled on foot to­ward a rear al­ley.

The crook wore a sim­il­ar dis­guise on Nov. 21 when he robbed the same busi­ness at about 3:27 a.m. The busi­ness was also tar­geted on Oct. 1 and Nov. 4. De­tect­ives be­lieve that the same rob­ber donned a skull mask in both of those in­stances. An ac­com­plice took part in the first heist, but the lead rob­ber ap­par­ently ac­ted alone in the en­su­ing three, ac­cord­ing to po­lice.

Au­thor­it­ies did not dis­close the amount of money stolen in any of the rob­ber­ies. Wawa has offered a $5,000 re­ward for in­form­a­tion lead­ing to the ar­rest and con­vic­tion of the rob­bers.

The lead crook has been de­scribed as black, between 5 feet 8 inches and 6 feet 2 inches tall, with a thin build. He typ­ic­ally has worn a dark hooded sweat­shirt, blue jeans and work boots.
