Employee Stabbed in Chestnut Hill Robbery

Three unidentified men held a barber shop employee and several customers at knifepoint Saturday, stabbing a worker during a scuffle and then taking off with cash and electronics.

One of the employees of Sharpie's Barber Shop, located at 8129 Stenton Ave in the city's Chestnut Hill neighborhood, confronted the robbers when they entered the store around 6 p.m. and was stabbed in the back, police said.

The three suspects were dressed in hooded sweatshirts and had their faces covered when the robbery took place, authorities said. 

The robbers, who were last seen running east on East Mount Pleasant Avenue, made off with about $95 and a laptop, according to police.

Police described one suspect as a stocky man, another as standing 5-feet 2-inches tall and the third as about 5-feet 7-inches tall.  All three men were wearing dark hooded sweatshirts, dark pants and white masks across their faces, officials said.

Police recommend no one approach the men and urge anyone with information about the crime, or their identities, to contact them at 215-686-3353, extension 3354.
