Suspect sought in Wawa robbery

Sus­pect in Wawa rob­bery case cap­tured in sur­veil­lance video.

Po­lice hope that a sur­veil­lance video of a June 13 armed rob­bery at a Wissi­nom­ing con­veni­ence store will help them identi­fy the per­pet­rat­or.

The crime oc­curred at 3:44 a.m. at the Wawa at 6101 Har­bison Ave. The rob­ber entered the store and waited for a cash­ier to fin­ish serving a cus­tom­er. He then pulled out a knife, went be­hind the cash­ier’s counter and took $300 from the re­gister be­fore flee­ing on foot.

He was last seen run­ning north­bound on Har­bison Av­en­ue.

The sus­pect is black, 20 to 30 years old and about 5 feet 8 inches tall. He wore a blue hooded sweat­shirt with the Nike logo on the front and black shorts.

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