Armed robber sought in 7-Eleven heist

An armed rob­ber struck at an Up­per Holmes­burg 7-El­ev­en store on Feb. 11.

Po­lice have re­leased sur­veil­lance video of the heist, which oc­curred at about 4:55 a.m. at 9001 Frank­ford Ave. The rob­ber ini­tially posed as a pat­ron, picked up an item from one of the shelves and car­ried it to the cash­ier’s counter. The crook then handed money to the clerk as if to pay for the item. But when the clerk opened the re­gister, the rob­ber pulled a gun and de­man­ded cash.

The rob­ber fled with an un­dis­closed amount of money and was last seen run­ning through the park­ing lot to­ward Tol­but Street. He was de­scribed as white, about 30 years old, 165 to 180 pounds, with a me­di­um build, a thick mus­tache, a black hood­ie jack­et, blue jeans, black boots and a mask.
