Caught on Cam: Gunman Robs Popeye's Chicken Restaurant in SW Philly

Police are searching for the suspects who robbed a Popeye’s Chicken restaurant in Southwest Philadelphia.

On Friday at 11:26 p.m., a 22-year-old woman was working as a cashier inside the Popeye’s Chicken on the 5100 block of Woodland Avenue when two men entered.

One of the men placed an order while the second man waited outside and acted as a lookout, police said. As the employee opened the cash register, the first suspect pulled out a handgun and reached into the register, stealing an undetermined amount of cash before fleeing the scene.

The first suspect is described as a stocky, 20-year-old man standing between 5-foot-8 and 5-foot-9. He was last seen wearing a white and blue hooded jacket underneath a dark colored jacket and a black ski mask covering the lower half of his face.

The second suspect is described as a medium-built 20-year-old man wearing a dark-colored hooded sweatshirt, dark-colored pants and light-colored sneakers.
