Gunwoman Manhandles, Robs Victim Leaving Olney Store

A woman armed with a gun forced a man into his car Monday afternoon in Philadelphia and then had him drive to his home, where she robbed him, police said.

The attacker approached the victim about 4:30 p.m. outside Christian Express, a corner store in the 5200 block of North Fifth Street in the Olney section, police said.

She then ordered him into his car and had him drive her to his home, where she rummaged through his belongings and took some valuables, police said. At one point, when the victim tried to stop her from taking his things, she shoved him onto a bed and choked him, police said.

The attacker then took the victim's 2000 Ford Focus and fled with $12, a T-mobile tablet, a Guess watch, and a gold necklace with a pendant attached. No shots were fired and no injuries were reported during this incident. 

Detectives ask that anyone with information about the suspect call (215)686-3353 or (215)686-3354.
