Police have charged a 21-year-old West Philadelphia man with robbing a bar and a liquor store at gunpoint earlier last week.
Timothy Scott, 21, of Ogden Street near 41st, was among three men who barged into the Caprice Villa Bar at 50th and Market streets on June 16, police said. One of the crooks toted an Uzi, while the other clutched a black handgun. The third man acted as a lookout. Cops said the three thieves made off with $310 in cash that night.
On June 17, Scott and another man robbed the Wine and Spirits Store on Lancaster Avenue near 46th at gunpoint, and made off with about $1,000 in cash, police said. Scott and his accomplice fled on a pair of bicycles.
Scott was arrested on Friday and charged with two counts of criminal conspiracy, robbery, aggravated assault and related offenses.
