Roxborough Gunpoint Carjacking Suspect Caught on Cam Using Victim's Credit Card

One of the men who carjacked a Roxborough family at gunpoint outside their home early on Memorial Day used a victim's credit card at a West Philadelphia convenience store less than an hour after the robbery, and police say cameras caught him in the act.

Now, they're asking for the public's help to identify the young man, who they say was among a trio who robbed a 42-year-old woman, her 52-year-old brother, who has cerebral palsy, and her 25-year-old niece about 12:35 a.m. May 30 on Gerhard Street near Ridge Avenue. The family had just gotten home when police say the men approached them, pointed a handgun at them and stole the two women's purses and phones before taking the family's 2008 blue Acura MDX.

Police on Monday released surveillance video that shows one of the alleged robbers going into a Sunoco on Lancaster Avenue near 52nd Street and using one victim's credit card. Police said the man then used the credit card again at a Wawa on Spruce Street near 38th.

Police are looking for the man shown on the video and his two accomplices, as well as a silver Pontiac Grand Am he's seen getting out of at the Wawa. They're also still searching for the victims' blue 2008 Acura MDX, which has Pennsylvania tag GVH-0977.

Anyone with information on the crime is asked to call Northwest Detectives at 215-686-3353 or 3354.
