Police seek Wawa robber

Sur­veil­lance photo

An un­known man used a threat of vi­ol­ence to rob a Bustleton Wawa store late last month.

The heist oc­curred on Dec. 29 at about 12:20 a.m. and was cap­tured on video by sur­veil­lance cam­er­as. 

Ini­tially, the crook seemed like a cus­tom­er and even began to pur­chase an item, po­lice said. But when the cash­ier opened the re­gister, the rob­ber threatened him and de­man­ded money. The clerk com­plied.

The rob­ber fled on foot with an un­dis­closed amount of cash and was last seen head­ing west­bound on Bloom­field Av­en­ue. He was de­scribed as white and 6 feet tall with an av­er­age build. He wore a black hooded sweat­shirt and blue jeans.

Vis­it the Phil­adelphia Po­lice chan­nel on You­Tube.com to view the video. Call 215-686-TIPS or text to PP­DTIP to re­port in­form­a­tion. ••
