NORTH PHILADELPHIA — Philadelphia police are asking for help identifying the two people who robbed and carjacked a 21-year-old woman near Temple University.
They say early Sunday, Aug. 18, at about 6:30am, the victim went to her car on the 2000 block of N. 9th Street in North Philadelphia.
Unfortunately, as she was getting in, two unknown guys approached her.
Police say the first
“pulled a handgun and placed it to her stomach, demanding she get out of her vehicle.”
She did as she was told, and the suspects
“took her car with her wallet and belongings still inside.”
You can see from the surveillance video, the whole ordeal lasted less than 30 seconds.
Then, the victim ran and reported what happened to Temple University Police.
Philadelphia police ask that if you recognize or see the suspects, do not approach them. Instead, call the East Detective Division at 215-686-3243 or 215-686-3244, or 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.
