Philadelphia Police are seeking information about a pair of men who robbed the McDonald’s restaurant at W. Allegheny and Henry avenues early Tuesday morning at gunpoint.

According to the Northwest Detective Division, the unknown robbers entered the location in the Allegheny West neighborhood around 6:15 a.m. with their faces covered.

One wielded a pair of handguns and served as a lookout while the other jumped the counter and loaded cash from the register into a dark-colored duffel bag, according to police.

Making off with $200 in cash, the pair fled west on Allegheny Avenue in a white vehicle that was “possibly a taxi cab with a clear light on top, blue writing on the door possibly the letter ‘C,'” police said.

Suspect descriptions

The suspects are described as black males in their late teens to early twenties.

The gunman, described as thin, wore a dark colored zip-up jacket with white drawstrings. A dark-colored bandana covered his face as well.

The man who jumped the counter had a medium build and was wearing a dark-colored hooded jacket with vertical gray stripes under both arms, dark pants and dark sneakers. He had a white shirt covering his face.

Police ask anyone with information about the case, or suspects, to call Northwest Detective Division at (215) 686-3353/54 or the tipsline at (215) 686-TIPS, text a tip to PPD TIP (773847) or send it in via the department’s website.
