Sur­veil­lance photo

A hooded and masked man with a gun held up a Lawn­crest con­veni­ence store on June 24.

Po­lice have re­leased sur­veil­lance video of the rob­bery, which oc­curred at 7-El­ev­en, 5800 Rising Sun Ave., at about 2:15 a.m. A 52-year-old man was work­ing be­hind the cash re­gister when the un­known ban­dit entered the store, poin­ted a hand­gun at the clerk and de­man­ded money. The crook stuffed $200 in­to his sweat­shirt and was last seen north­bound on Rising Sun. No in­jur­ies were re­por­ted.

The rob­ber was de­scribed as black, 6 feet tall, about 180 pounds, wear­ing a blue hood­ie with white let­ter­ing and a white T-shirt un­der­neath, along with black pants and black shoes. Vis­it the Phil­adelphia Po­lice chan­nel on You­Tube.com to view the video. Call 215-686-TIPS or text to PPD TIP to re­port in­form­a­tion. ••
