Police seek Somerton Wawa robber

Sur­veil­lance im­age of the sus­pect

A man dressed up for a pick-up bas­ket­ball game robbed a Somer­ton con­veni­ence store on Aug. 24, say Phil­adelphia po­lice, who are try­ing to identi­fy the cul­prit.

Po­lice de­scribed the rob­ber as a white man between 30 and 40 years old, 5 feet 8 inches tall and 200 pounds. He wore black ath­let­ic shorts, black sneak­ers and a baggy white tank top with a faded red or pink T-shirt un­der­neath of it.

The rob­ber walked in­to the Wawa at 10901 Bustleton Ave. on Aug. 24 at 5:18 p.m., told a cash­ier he had a gun and de­man­ded money from the re­gister, po­lice said. The em­ploy­ee sur­rendered an un­dis­closed amount of money to the man, who fled through the rear of the store in an un­known dir­ec­tion.
