Men wear­ing Hal­loween masks have put the fear of death in­to em­ploy­ees of an Ox­ford Circle con­veni­ence store in re­cent weeks by rob­bing the place three times at gun­point.

The armed heists oc­curred on Oct. 1, Nov. 4 and Nov. 21 at Wawa, 6460 Bustleton Ave.

In the first in­cid­ent, a man in a skull mask and an ac­com­plice entered the store at about 3:45 a.m., poin­ted guns at em­ploy­ees and de­man­ded they open the cash re­gisters. They were last seen flee­ing north­bound on Bustleton Av­en­ue with an un­dis­closed amount of cash.

The man with the skull mask ap­par­ently ac­ted alone in the second heist when he entered the same store at about 3:25 a.m., poin­ted a gun at the clerk and forced him to place money in­to a black back­pack. He was last seen in an al­ley near 6400 Ak­ron St. flee­ing with an un­dis­closed amount of cash.

Last Thursday, a man wear­ing a Scream-style mask entered the store at about 3:27 a.m., poin­ted a gun at an em­ploy­ee and forced him to open the cash re­gisters. The rob­ber stuffed an un­dis­closed amount of cash in­to a tan bag and fled through the same al­ley near 6400 Ak­ron St.

The lead rob­ber has been de­scribed as black or of un­known race. He is between 5 feet 8 inches and 6 feet 2 inches tall and thin. The ac­com­plice in the first rob­bery has been de­scribed as black and about 5 feet 6 inches tall.
