VIDEO: Suspect wanted in gunpoint robbery of Center City 7-Eleven
Police are looking for a gunman caught on camera Aug. 22 robbing a 7-Eleven at 917 Filbert St. in Center City.
Investigators said the man entered the store shortly before 11:30 p.m., pulled out a rusted semiautomatic handgun and said to the cashier, “You know what this is. Give me all the money.”
The employee then opened the register and placed the drawer on the counter.
After taking an undetermined amount of cash from the register drawer, the man allegedly demanded Newport cigarettes.
Authorities said he fled north on 10th Street after the employee gave him five packs of smokes.
The suspect is described as a 5-foot-9, 175- to 185-pound black male of about 20 years of age with light facial hair.
He was last seen wearing a black baseball cap with writing on the front and a round shiny sticker on the brim, a black V-neck T-shirt and gray pants.
