Armed robber strikes at Rite Aid


A hefty, scruffy-bearded bandit robbed a South Philadelphia Rite Aid at gunpoint on Monday, police said.

Surveillance images show the thief, a balding, 30-something white man who wore glasses and a white striped golf shirt, walking into the store, at Snyder Avenue near Swanson Street, at 3:46 p.m.

Police said he wandered the aisles for about 30 minutes, then followed a female Rite Aid employee as she entered the store's office. The crook pulled out a black handgun and ordered the employee to empty the store's safe. Police said the robber made off with about $3,000 and fled on foot in an unknown direction
