Po­lice have re­covered a gun, red hood­ie and black ski mask, but they’re still look­ing for the guy who used those items to hold up a 7-El­ev­en in Ta­cony on Feb. 18.

The heist oc­curred at 6927 Tor­res­dale Ave. at about 1:51 a.m. when an un­known man in a red sweat­shirt and knit ski mask entered the store and pulled a black hand­gun on two clerks. The rob­ber forced one em­ploy­ee to the floor and poin­ted the gun to the oth­er work­er’s chest, de­mand­ing that he open the cash re­gister. The crook fled with an un­dis­closed amount of money in an un­known dir­ec­tion.

Po­lice later found the sweat­shirt, hat and gun on the 6900 block of Marsden St.

The rob­ber was de­scribed as black with the afore­men­tioned cloth­ing. He also wore jeans. Vis­it the Phil­adelphia Po­lice chan­nel on You­Tube.com to view the sur­veil­lance video. Call 215-686-TIPS or text to PP­DTIP to re­port in­form­a­tion. ••
