A man, an American flag bandanna wrapped around his face, pulled a gun on a teenager working at a Northeast Philadelphia Wawa earlier this week.
The man walked into the convenience store along Harbison Avenue near Walker Street in Wissinoming around 4 a.m. Sunday, flashed a gun in his waistband then demanded the 19-year-old behind the counter hand over cash and cigarettes, said Philadelphia Police.
The worker emptied the register and handed over a carton of smokes then the robber fled up Walker Street.
