Police Investigate Armed Robberies In South Philly

Posted: Updated:

A group of armed robbers are on the prowl on popular Philadelphia streets, and police say they've struck several times in a matter of days.

Officials are looking for four suspects: 3 men and 1 woman in connection with at least three armed robberies in the South Philly area of Queen Village and Point Breeze.

FOX 29's Leigh Scheps spoke to one victim who was robbed right outside his front door.

Police need your help tracking down four dangerous suspects. They have been caught on tape mugging people at all hours of the day in Queen Village and Point Breeze.

Philadelphia Police tell us they have three of the 4 suspects wanted in connection with a series of armed robberies within days of each other all caught on camera.

The victim did not want us to show his face or reveal his name out of fear.

Police also say a woman was mugged by two men while walking on South 5th street hours just two days later.

One of the 4 suspects was caught on camera at Wal-Mart. Police say she used the woman's stolen credit card to buy an entire shopping cart of goods. The suspect then left the store and loaded up in a Camry.

Now police are urging people in the neighborhood to stay alert.

The suspects are described to be in their late teens to early thirties. If you recognize the people in the video or the Toyota Camry, you are asked to call police.
