Sur­veil­lance photo

Sur­veil­lance cam­er­as in a Lawn­crest con­veni­ence store filmed an armed rob­bery there on May 26. Po­lice hope that the video will gen­er­ate leads to the iden­tity of the ban­dit.

The crime oc­curred at about 4:25 p.m. at the Al­monte Mini Mar­ket, 546 Van Kirk St., when a man poin­ted a hand­gun at a 39-year-old wo­man em­ploy­ee and de­man­ded money. The clerk sur­rendered an un­dis­closed amount of cash. The rob­ber ran east on Van Kirk Street.

Po­lice de­scribed the rob­ber as an Asi­an man, about 20 years old, with black hair and light fa­cial hair. He wore sunglasses, a white Eagles base­ball-style cap, blue shirt and tan pants. Vis­it the Phil­adelphia Po­lice chan­nel on You­ to view the sur­veil­lance video. Call 215-686-TIPS or text to PP­DTIP to re­port in­form­a­tion. ••
