Philadelphia Police are looking for a suspect who they believe robbed a number of Philadelphia Dunkin Donuts wielding a gun over the course of two weeks.
Authorities say the first incident occurred on Nov. 15 around 8:52 a.m. when the suspect entered the Dunkin Donuts at 8113 Stenton Avenue with a handgun.
He told the employees to open the register, saying "you're being robbed." The suspect then turned the gun on a customer and demanded his money. After taking an undisclosed amount of money from the store and the customer, he fled on foot and was last seen on the 900 block of Ellen Street.
Then, on Nov. 29, the suspect entered the Dunkin Donuts at Front Street and Cheltenham Avenue. Again wielding a handgun, he demanded money from the register which he put into a bag. The suspect fled and was last seen South of the resturaunt in Philadelphia.
The following day he went back to the Dunkin Donuts on Stenton Avenue, armed with a handgun. He demanded and received an undisclosed amount of cash from the register before fleeing.
