Video: Employees terrorized, tied up in armed robbery

OLNEY — Three unidentified men caused terror at a Philadelphia business, at about midday Thursday.

Police say the trio entered Universal Graphics, at 5927 N. 5th Street in Olney, at 11:40am.

Two of the three were armed with semi-automatic handguns.

They forced the employee at the reception desk into the back of the business, where other employees were located.

Then, “all the victims were forced onto the floor and eventually tied up with duct tape.”

The criminals got away with

“a large amount of money, an iPhone 8 and an iPhone XR.”

They were last seen heading west on the 500 block of Widener Street.

Just after, the victims freed themselves and tried to chase the attackers. One shot was fired. Luckily, nobody was hit or injured.
