A clerk at a 7-Eleven in lower Northeast Philly was pistol whipped during a robbery, police said. The clerk was treated at Temple University hospital and released after getting stitches.

Two robbers entered the store, at Bridge and Large streets, at 3:15 a.m. Wednesday morning. After they demanded money from the clerk, who was cooperating with the thieves, one of the robbers pistol whipped him.

The two took an undisclosed amount of money from the store and fled on foot.

The news websites disagree on where this 7-Eleven is located. CBS 3 and NBC 10 say Frankford, while 6 ABC has it as Oxford Circle. Per the Philadelphia neighborhoods map, it’s just inside Frankford along the border with Northwood.

Anyone with information on Wednesday morning’s robbery is asked to contact Philadelphia police.
