Police: Man robs cyclist at gunpoint in Kensington

Suspect took cash, iPhone and iPad

A person looking for a late-night snack in Kensington was robbed of cash and valuables by a man wielding a gun Sunday morning, according to Police.

Authorities say the crime occurred on the 100 block of W. Norris Street around 2:20 a.m. when the victim was riding his bike to a Chinese restaurant at the intersection of Mascher Street.

The suspect approached the cyclist pointing a handgun at him. He demanded his money and took his wallet, black iPhone 4 and iPad.

That's when the robber made the victim get to his knees, ordering him to stay in the position until he had fled southbound on Mascher Street, police say.

The suspect is described a black male with a goatee, standing about 5'9" tall and weighing around 190 pounds. He was wearing a dark shirt with camouflage sleeves and a skull cap at the time of the crime.

Anyone with information on the incident is asked to call Sergeant John Massi of the 26th police district at 215-686-3260/61.
