Police seek robber of Krewstown Road Wawa

Sur­veil­lance im­age of the sus­pect

Po­lice have re­leased sur­veil­lance video of the Ju­ly 2 rob­bery of a Bustleton con­veni­ence store in the hope of identi­fy­ing the cul­prit.

The crime oc­curred at about 2 a.m. at Wawa, 8900 Krewstown Road, when the rob­ber entered the store, asked a clerk for a pack of ci­gar­ettes, then de­man­ded money from the re­gister. The ban­dit threatened the em­ploy­ee by pla­cing his hand in­side a blue bag and mo­tion­ing as if he were hold­ing a weapon.

The clerk gave an un­dis­closed amount of cash to the rob­ber, who was last seen flee­ing west on Bloom­field Av­en­ue. It is not known if he used a vehicle.

He was de­scribed as white, between 5 feet 10 inches and 6 feet tall, 20 to 30 years old, and wear­ing a brown T-shirt, dark cargo shorts, blue and white sneak­ers and a white base­ball cap with black let­ter­ing on the front.
