Philadelphia Wawa Robbed by Man Armed With a Needle (VIDEO)

A Philadelphia convenience store was robbed by a man armed with a needle over the weekend.

The incident occurred at the Wawa on the 3200 block of Richmond Street around 2:40 a.m. on Saturday.

The robber, whose face was largely covered by a scarf, pointed a needle at the cashier and demanded the money from the register.

The cashier complied and the criminal made off with an unspecified amount of money.

Police have released a video of the incident and seek the public’s help in identifying the suspect.

Those with information about the robber’s identity or whereabouts are being asked to call the Philadelphia Police Department.

“This Wawa is one of the remaining 24-hour locations in Philadelphia and has remained open after two other stores closed earlier this year,” Fox 29 reports.

The two stores were closed due to “safety and security challenges.”

“We are very sorry we can’t be there for our friends and neighbors at these two locations,” Wawa said in a statement at the time. “Philadelphia is our hometown and that’s something that will never change.”
