On Wednesday night at 6:40 p.m., a 68-year-old man was getting into his car outside of Yuri’s Gun Range, which is on Percy Street, just around the corner from Philadelphia police headquarters at 8th and Spring Garden streets. A man and a woman approached him, and the man pointed a handgun in the victim’s face and stole his backpack, which contained two 22-caliber handguns. Meanwhile, the woman fished through his pockets and took some other items. The pair fled in a car.
