He is said to have a medium complexion, and a dark goatee, and was wearing a black hoodie with jeans at the time of the robberies.

Saturday — Officials at Northeast Philadelphia Airport are investigating how foam leaked from a hangar Saturday afternoon. The foam began leaking around 4:30 p.m., but the incident was not sparked by a fire or other aircraft emergency. The foam, which is environmentally safe, did result in some aircrafts being removed from the hangar.

Sunday — A shooting in Frankford early Sunday morning left one man dead and a woman injured. Reports say the man and woman were in a parked car on the 4900–block of Penn Street shortly after 2 a.m. when a man came up and started shooting them. The 29-year-old male was shot in the face, chest and stomach, and was pronounced dead on the scene. The woman, 23, was treated for a gunshot wound to the leg at Einstein Medical Center. Details surrounding the incident are still under investigation.
