Philadelphia Police Hunt For Suspects In String Of Hunting Park Holdups

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Philadelphia police believe the same two men are responsible for a series of robberies in the Hunting Park section of the city, and now they’re asking neighbors to help in the investigation.

Officials today released security camera photographs and video of one of six robberies committed in the past week.

“Two individuals walk into the dollar store located in the 3500 block Germantown Avenue,” says Lt. Frank Vanore.  “They produce two handguns. The store owner in this case pushes back, doesn’t allow the individuals in behind the counter.  Both of them violently strike the store owner, causing him some injuries to his head, and they flee the area.”

Watch the Surveillance Video

In those surveillance pictures, one suspect is wearing a maroon hooded sweatshirt, the other a grey hoodie.

Vanore says the bandits also robbed two Metro PCS cell phone stores and a number of pedestrians on the street.

Police are now hoping that someone in the neighborhood recognizes the young men and comes forward.  In the meantime, they’ve stepped up patrols in Hunting Park as they continue the search for the suspects.
