Phil­adelphia po­lice seek the pub­lic’s help in identi­fy­ing a man who burg­lar­ized the Prism Ca­reer In­sti­tute in Rhawn­hurst on Nov. 5.

Of­ficers from the 7th dis­trict went to the busi­ness at 8040 Roosevelt Blvd. in re­sponse to a re­port of a burg­lary and re­covered sur­veil­lance video. The film showed an un­known man en­ter­ing the build­ing, leav­ing, then re­turn­ing a short time later with a shop­ping cart. The man took a flat-screen tele­vi­sion, placed it in the cart and ex­ited the build­ing.

An un­known man ap­peared to help the burg­lar trans­port the tele­vi­sion north­bound on the Boulevard.

The burg­lar then re­turned to the busi­ness with the empty shop­ping cart and re-entered the build­ing. He took more items, placed them in­side a bag and fled on foot south­bound on the Boulevard.

Po­lice de­scribed the burg­lar as white, 35 to 40 years old, 5 feet 6 inches to 5 feet 9 inches tall and with a me­di­um build. He wore a black base­ball cap with “Eagles” prin­ted on it as well as jeans and a dark hooded sweat­shirt.
