Police searching for robbers in North Philadelphia grocery story robbery

    Forward-thinking they’re not. The men who robbed a North Philadelphia grocery store Saturday made little attempt to hide their identities; one even posed for the security camera. Now, police are asking for help identifying the suspects.


    The two men, who are described as being 23 to 24 years of ages (though they look to be in middle school if you ask us), entered Rodriguez Grocery at 4 p.m. Saturday waving guns.

    The suspects are described as black males; one wore a red hood under a black jacket and is about six feet tall, the other wore a blue hood under a black vest and is about 5-feet-10.
