Gunman Says ‘We Can do This The Easy Way or The Hard Way' During Robbery of Northeast Philly Wawa

“We can do this the easy way or the hard way.”

Those are the terrifying words police say an armed suspect uttered to an employee during the robbery of a Wawa in Northeast Philadelphia.

The incident happened about 3 a.m. on June 23 at the Wawa in the 6900 block of Castor Avenue in the city’s Oxford Circle section.

The male entered the store, approached the counter, lifted his shirt to display the handle of a gun and said “we can do this the easy way or the hard way” to an employee.

The employee gave the male an undisclosed amount of money before running out of the store.

Anyone with information on the suspect is urged to contact police.
