    A thief targeted an iconic riverfront restaurant over the weekend.

    Philadelphia Police released surveillance video of a man stealing from the Moshulu Restaurant, which is docked on the Delaware River at Penn’s Landing.

    Police say the man got on the boat around 1:50 a.m. Sunday.

    The video shows a man in a backward white baseball cap and wearing dark clothes who was carrying a two-tone backpack taking various items and cash from inside the well-known floating eatery.

    It isn’t known how the man got on the boat but he got off by breaking a window before fleeing in an unknown direction.

    Anyone who recognizes the thief or has information is asked to contact Dets. Guercio or Murphy at 215-686-3093.
