Police are on the hunt for a burglar who they say targeted West Philly businesses on Christmas and New Year’s Day.

On Christmas, around 4:30 a.m., police say the suspect picked up a brick from a dumpster and threw it through the glass door of the Fiesta Pizza restaurant on the 4500 block of Baltimore Avenue. The suspect then allegedly went inside, forced the cash register open and fled the scene with an undetermined amount of money.

On New Year’s Day, at 5:16 a.m., the suspect allegedly entered the Mill Creek Tavern on the 4200 block of Chester Avenue. Police say the suspect was riding a bicycle and once again threw a brick through the front window. He then allegedly stole loose change from the cash register before fleeing the scene.

The suspect is described as a medium-built man who was wearing dark clothing and possibly a jacket with a dark-colored pattern.

If you have any information on his whereabouts, please call Philadelphia Police.
