Police are looking for a man they say robbed a Philadelphia Wawa of cash and two iced teas with threats of violence.
The incident occurred on Sept. 12 at about 4:10 p.m. at the Wawa located at 6400 Torresdale Ave.
The suspect entered the store and went to the counter with two iced teas and a note that he handed to the 25-year-old male employee, police said.
The note allegedly instructed him to put money from the register in a bag along with the two iced teas, or else "he would hurt them," according to authorities.
The employee complied, putting an undisclosed amount of cash along with the drinks in a bag and handing it to the suspect, who fled on foot and was last seen on Levick Street, police said.
Police released surveillance video, which can be viewed below:
The suspect is described as a black male with a medium or dark complexion who is about 20 years old and stands 5 feet 8 inches tall with a thin build. He was last seen wearing a red shirt, white Polo cap, black pants and white sneakers.
Police ask that if you see the suspect, do not approach him and instead call 911.
