Police seeking suspect in Cedarbrook robbery

On June 27 at approximately 8:50 p.m. two females on the 1000 block of East Mt. Airy Avenue were approached from behind by a male who said, “May I ask you a question.”

He then motioned under his shirt, indicating that he may have a handgun and said, “Give me what you got.”

One of the complainants handed him $20. The suspect then asked if the two had cellphones. When they said they didn’t have cellphones, the suspect ran away. 

The suspect is described as a black male between the ages of 20 and 30. He is about 5 feet 11 inches in height with a thin build. He was seen with a beard and wearing dark colored pants, dark colored sneakers and a gray hoodie. 

To submit a tip via telephone, dial 215.686.TIPS (8477) or text a tip to PPD TIP or 773847. If you think you see the suspect, call 911 immediately.
