Cops Looking for Man in Failed Northeast Philly Robbery

A man armed with a handgun attempted to rob the Welsh Rd. 7-Eleven, but didn't get away with anything.

The Philadelphia police are on the lookout for a man who attempted to rob the 7-Eleven at Welsh Road and Old Bustleton Ave.

On September 7th, an man armed with a handgun came into the 7-Eleven and demanded money from an employee. The employee said there wasn’t any money in the store, and so the robber demanded lottery tickets instead. The employee said no. And then the dude just left in a dark-colored sedan driven by an unknown accomplice. Yes, thankfully this was quite an incompetent attempted robbery.

Here’s the description from Philly police.

White male, 5’0″-5’2″, medium-stocky build, wearing glasses, black hat, face mask, dark colored shirt, blue pants, black shoes, white gloves, and armed with a handgun.
