Video: Two Women Robbed on Street in Northern Liberties

Police say this man is one of the two perps, who said they had a gun.


Police are asking for the public’s help to find two men who robbed two women in their 20s in Northern Liberties last Thursday night.

The two women, ages 24 and 27, were walking west on Fairmount when two men forced them to the ground. Police say one of the men took an iPhone and green leather purse containing Target gift cards and bank cards, while the other suspect took the other woman’s black tote bag.

According to the women, the men told them that they had a gun and that they would shoot if they tried to get up. The men fled in a Dodge Dakota pickup truck with wooden panels, seen here:


There can’t be too many of those on the street.
