Police seek help identifying robbery suspect
Philadelphia police hope that a surveillance video will help them identify a man who robbed a Bustleton Dairy Queen on Valentine’s Day.
The crime occurred at 8:40 p.m. at 1619 Grant Ave. when the man approached a cashier, stated he had a gun and demanded money, police said. The robber took an undisclosed amount of money and fled on foot.

The robber was described as white, 20 to 25 years old, about 5 feet 6 inches tall with a medium build. He wore a camouflage baseball-style cap, a tan hooded sweatshirt, a brown jacket and a black bandana around his neck.
