CENTER CITY — A woman living in the heart of Center City on a little-known block got quite a scare when Philadelphia police say a man got into her home.
It happened late last Friday, Sept. 27, at 10:05pm.
Police say the man got into the home on the 300 block of Fawn Street through a second floor bathroom window.
The 59-year-old woman living there was woken up by
“the suspect standing at the foot of her bed demanding jewelry, money and (her) cell phone.”
She complied with the robber’s demands, and he got away through the front door in an unknown direction.
The victim was not injured and the suspect didn’t use any weapons.
He is described as being in his late 20s to early 30s, 6’2” tall, with a medium build and facial hair, and he was wearing a dark-colored hooded sweatshirt, red or orange t-shirt, and a baseball cap.
Police ask that if you recognize or see the suspect, do not approach him. Instead, call the Central Detective Division at 215-686-3093 or 215-686-3094, 911, or their tip line immediately.
