Man robs same store, clerk twice

A store clerk who was robbed in late October came face to face with the bandit again on Dec. 15 during a second armed robbery, police said.

Cops posted a video of the incident in hopes that help from the public will lead to an arrest.

Around 7:10 p.m. on Dec. 15, a man walked into the Golden Sports store on Grays Ferry Avenue near 30th Street demanding cash.

The clerk realized that he recognized the suspect from a robbery on Oct. 27, and told the man to leave.

However, the man grabbed the clerk, pulled out a knife and demanded cash from the register.

The clerk pulled out $120 from the register, and police said the hoodlum robbed the clerk of $80 of his own money, and ran off.

The suspect is described as a black man in his mid 20s to early 30s. He was 5-feet-9 inches tall, had a medium build and a light complexion.

Tipsters are asked to call 215-686-TIPS (8477) or leave an anonymous tip online.
