JENKINTOWN, Pa. (CBS) — Police in Abington Township have released surveillance video of an armed robbery at a local restaurant where one of the suspects can be seen wearing what appears to be a “Freddy Krueger” blade glove.
It happened at the Qdoba Mexican Grill on the 200 block of Old York Road in the Jenkintown section, just after 10 p.m. Saturday.
Employees said, shortly after closing, two suspects entered and held three employees at knifepoint. Surveillance video shows the male suspect armed with what police are calling a “Freddy Krueger” blade glove.
“The male suspect was armed with a glove,” said Lt. Steven Fink of the Abington Police Department. “We’re describing it a Freddie Krueger-Wolverine type glove.”
The female suspect was armed with a large kitchen knife.
“Female had a very large butcher knife, also used in a very threatening manner,” said Fink.
Police say the suspects stole an undisclosed amount of cash from the restaurant. None of the employees were injured.
For some reason, employees never locked the door and then in came the man with the triple-bladed hand, along with his butcher knife-wielding accomplice.
“Witnesses say he was very proficient with it, and you can see in the video he holds it right up to the throat in a menacing manner,” said Fink.
The first suspect is described as a black male, 5-foot-8 to 5-foot-10, thin build, wearing a black hoodie pulled up, dark pants and shoes, black glove on his left hand, and a large “Freddy Krueger” style silver bladed glove on his right hand.
The second suspect is described as a black female, 5-foot-2 to 5-foot-4, wearing a black hoodie with the hood pulled up, a dark baseball cap under the hood and a dark cloth covering her lower face, black pants, dark sneakers, and was armed with a large silver kitchen knife with a 12-inch blade.
Anyone having information about this case is asked to contact the Abington Township Police Department at 267-536-1100.
