A masked man with a knife robbed a Park­wood beer dis­trib­ut­or last month. Po­lice have re­leased video of the heist in hope of identi­fy­ing the ban­dit.

The crime oc­curred on Feb. 24 at Beer Town Bever­age, 12345 Academy Road. At about 8:50 p.m., the rob­ber entered the store, pulled a knife on an em­ploy­ee and de­man­ded money. After the work­er sur­rendered an un­dis­closed amount of cash, the crook fled on foot. He was last seen head­ing east­bound on Academy Road.

The rob­ber was de­scribed as white and 5 feet 6 inches tall, wear­ing a blue jack­et with gray sleeves, black pants and a black ski mask. Vis­it the Phil­adelphia Po­lice chan­nel on You­Tube.com to view the sur­veil­lance video.
