Cops: Robbers get $21,500 in Greyhound terminal holdup

Robbers forced a supervisor at the Center City Greyhound terminal to page other employees to her location this morning so they could all be put into a caged area together while the bandits swipped $21,500 from the business, according to police.

Around 2:50 a.m., the 42-year-old supervisor at the Greyhound terminal at Filbert and 10th streets was approached by three armed men who were wearing all black clothing with masks and gloves, police said. The men ordered her in to a caged-in area and forced her to page other employees to come to her location, according to police.

Three employees did respond - a 19-year-old man, a 22-year-old woman and a 64-year-old man - and were placed into the caged-in area with the supervisor. The supervisor was then taken at gunpoint by one of the offenders and ordered to open a safe, police said.

The robber took $3,000 from the safe and before the three fled, they also took about $18,500 from the counter area, according to police.

The men fled out of a break room door and were last seen heading east on Arch Street.

No injuries were reported and the suspects remain unidentified.
