PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Police in Horsham, Pa. are asking for help from the public as they continue to search for a suspect wanted in an armed robbery in a hotel parking lot earlier this month.
But they think they have a pretty good lead: surveillance video from a CVS store in Bensalem, Bucks County, where police say a woman (photo) used a credit card that was stolen in that armed robbery.
Horsham police say a woman was checking into the Residence Inn on Walnut Grove Avenue three weeks ago when she was accosted in the parking lot.
“She was approached by a short, white male with a hood over his head,” according to detective James Vincenti, “and she was roughed up a bit and sustained injury to her head from a handgun that he had.”
Vincenti says there was a struggle before the man made off with her wallet and $400 in cash. A credit card has been used at several businesses in Lower Bucks County, including the CVS, by a white woman wearing a black knit hat and black overcoat. It was also used at a CVS and a 7-Eleven store in Bristol, Pa.
