FELTONVILLE — A 32-year-old woman withdrawing money from an ATM, just days ago, didn’t just get held up by a man with a handgun.
Philadelphia police say at 10:40pm this past Wednesday, Dec. 18, the robber got out of an SUV parked in front of King’s Express Chinese restaurant — at 4529 N. 5th Street in Feltonville — where the ATM was located.
He “approached the victim and pulled a handgun, taking $150 from her.
“The suspect then took her iPhone 6S phone and walked her to the counter to get a pen, making her write down her PIN number to access the cell phone. After, he made her disable the iCloud.
“He forced her to walk outside with him and told her to walk on Annsbury Street towards 4th Street.”
The victim was not reported injured.
According to police, “Video recovered appears to show the suspect” had gotten out of a PT Cruiser, and there is no information on the driver.
They ask that if you recognize or see the suspect, do not approach him. Instead, call 911 or their tip line immediately. You can also email, text a tip to PPD TIP or 773847, or click here to submit a tip electronically. They say all tips will remain anonymous.
