Police seek help identifying robbery suspect

Sur­veil­lance im­age of the sus­pect

Phil­adelphia po­lice hope that a sur­veil­lance video will help them identi­fy a man who robbed a Bustleton Dairy Queen on Valentine’s Day.

The crime oc­curred at 8:40 p.m. at 1619 Grant Ave. when the man ap­proached a cash­ier, stated he had a gun and de­man­ded money, po­lice said. The rob­ber took an un­dis­closed amount of money and fled on foot.

Sur­veil­lance video shows that oth­er pat­rons were in­side the frozen dessert shop at the time, but po­lice iden­ti­fied no ad­di­tion­al vic­tims. No in­jur­ies were re­por­ted.

The rob­ber was de­scribed as white, 20 to 25 years old, about 5 feet 6 inches tall with a me­di­um build. He wore a cam­ou­flage base­ball-style cap, a tan hooded sweat­shirt, a brown jack­et and a black bandana around his neck.

Vis­it the Phil­adelphia Po­lice page on You­Tube.com to view the video. Call 215-686-TIPS or test PPD TIP to re­port in­form­a­tion about the case. ••
