Man Grabs Cash Bag During Fender Bender: Cops

Police say Chik-fil-A employee going to make a deposit was possibly targeted

An airport fast food employee going to deposit the day’s take at a Delaware County bank had her car rammed, was robbed and then dragged in what police call a possibly targeted crime.

The female employee left the Philadelphia International Airport Chik-fil-A location in the Gates B/C connector Monday and got in her car with the deposit money, according to Ridley Township Police.

Around 1 p.m., the Brookhaven Pa. woman’s car was tapped by a blue sedan from behind at the intersection of Chester Pike and Bullens Lane in Ridley Township, police said.

A man and a woman were in the blue sedan. The man got out of his car and began screaming at the victim that the crash was her fault. During the commotion he reached into the car and took the bank bag filled with around $7,000 in cash, police said.

As he drove off the restaurant employee kept hold of the sedan and was dragged for a short period of time, cops said.

No word on if the employee suffered any injuries. She was being questioned by police about the incident.

Police tell NBC10's Harry Hairston that the robbery appeared to be an inside job and that the suspects were possibly tipped off that the victim was leaving.

A witness to the incident was with police Tuesday and helped police put together a sketch of the male suspect.

Anyone who recognizes the man or has information on this incident should contact Ridley Township Police at 610-532-4002.
