CVS robbery attempt foiled

Sur­veil­lance im­age

A would-be rob­ber dressed the part of Bri­an West­brook, but he per­formed more like Happy Feller as he failed to grab a wo­man’s cash at a Castor Gar­dens phar­macy on Feb. 1.

The crime oc­curred at about 6:10 p.m. at the CVS at 6515 Castor Ave. A wo­man was wait­ing for her pre­scrip­tion to be filled when an uniden­ti­fied man wear­ing an Eagles No. 36 jer­sey made a move for the cash in her hand. When the vic­tim res­isted, an­oth­er pat­ron in­ter­vened and helped re­pel the rob­ber.

The crook was last seen flee­ing the store and run­ning to­ward Castor Ave. He was de­scribed as black and 5 feet 11 inches tall with a me­di­um build. He wore a black and white bandana, a base­ball cap and a green Eagles No. 36 jer­sey.
