PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Philadelphia police are searching for a suspect who robbed a victim at gunpoint outside his home earlier this month.

The robbery happened at about 11:00 p.m. on November 13th outside a home near the 2400 block of N. 77th Street.

According to investigators, the incident began when the victim was inside a 7-Eleven store and was approached by the suspect who asked him for a cigarette. The victim gave the suspect a cigarette and left the store.
