The Philadelphia Police are seeking help from the public to identify two men, who they say robbed a City Blue Outlet in Juniata Park on Dec. 20 armed with a handgun.
According to police, on that day at about 10:55 a.m., two males wearing masks and gloves entered the City Blue Outlet located at 3908 Kensington Avenue, displayed a handgun and demanded an employee open a cash register.
Law enforcement officials said that the gunman told the store's manager, “Don’t no one be a hero," before the men were given an undisclosed amount of money from a cash register and the store's safe.
