Philadelphia police hope the public can help them identify two men who burglarized a grocery store in the city's Hartranft section.

The burglary happened at Allegheny Market, located at 2400 N. Ninth St., between 7 p.m. Sunday and 8 a.m. Monday, according to police.

The burglars entered the building through a second-floor window, then got into the business through the ceiling, police said. The suspects used a sledge hammer to break into an ATM machine inside the store before fleeing with an unknown amount of cash and cigarettes.


One suspect is described as a short-haired black or Hispanic male in his late teens or early 20s. He was wearing a red hoodie with black lettering across the front and tan pants.

Police did not release a description of the second suspect, other than that he was wearing dark clothing and, like the first suspect, something to cover his face.

Police ask anyone with information about the burglars to call East Detectives Division at215-686-3243/3244.
