VIDEO: Police Looking for Cross-Dressing Robber, Accomplice

Police say two men — one in “dark female Muslim attire” — robbed a North Philadelphia dollar store.

Police are on the lookout for two men who they say robbed a Family Dollar store in the Glenwood section of North Philadelphia. The one was dressed in “dark female Muslim attire” and pulled a gun on the employee working the cash register. The surveillance footage is terrifying, with a robber holding a gun to an employee’s neck as he forces her to open the safe.

Here’s the description of the two men from police:

Suspect #1: Black male, 20 years-of-age, 6’1″, thin build, mustache, dark complected, wearing dark female Muslim attire with a black and white shirt underneath, black running pants with a white stripe, and dark colored shoes.

Suspect #2: Black male, 20 years-of-age, 6’2″, thin build, light beard, wearing dark sunglasses, dark jacket with a horizontal white stripe, blue jeans, and a dark colored Jeff cap.

They fled east on Allegheny Avenue after the robbery. Anyone with information is urged to call police.
