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.
