Wawa Robber Threatens to Shoot Customers

No one except manager knew it was a hold up

Philadelphia Police are looking for a brazen robbery suspect, who held up a convenience store in front of dozens of customers.

Authorities have released surveillance video of the hold-up of the Wawa at 36th and Chestnut Streets in University City.

There were up to 30 people in the store at around 2 a.m. on Sunday morning, when the overweight, armed suspect demanded cash from the store safe, police said.

They also said he threatened the store manager that he had enough bullets to shoot all the customers. The customers in the store were apparently unaware of what was happening.

He made off with about $1,500.
