Manayunk eatery burglars caught on camera: Police
Police hope the public can help identify two men they say stole cash and a safe from a popular Manayunk restaurant early Monday morning.
Philadelphia Police Department posted surveillance video to YouTube on Tuesday it says shows the two burglars “casing” The Couch Tomato Bistro, located at 102 Rector St., about 4:15 a.m. Monday.
The two men entered the restaurant a short time later, stealing money from cash registers and using a cart to remove a safe from the business, police said.
They left the area with an undisclosed amount of cash about 4:50 a.m. They were traveling in an unknown direction on Main Street in a late-model conversion van, possibly a Dodge, police said.
Police described the suspects as white, with one being stocky and 30 to 40 years old and the other thin and about 20 years old. The older suspect appears to have a tattoo on the back of his neck.
Philadelphia Police Department asks that anyone with information about this crime or these suspects contact the Northwest Detective Division at 215-686-3353 or 215-686-3354.
