Philadelphia police have just released a very good video of a man they believe is responsible for the robbery of a woman in downtown Philadelphia. Police say the thief used a gun to commit the crime.

On February 21, 2022, the woman was walking on 13th Street, around 11:30 p.m. near Irving Street. It was then that police said the man in the video came up behind her and pulled out a gun. He forced her into Irving Street and allegedly stole her wallet, containing ID, sunglasses and a cell phone.

The thief then got away in an early 2000s Volvo S60 and fled.

  • Suspicious description: Bald, slim black man dressed in a beige sweater, beige pants and white sneakers.
