Police are searching for two suspects who they say robbed and carjacked two men at gunpoint early Sunday morning in Crescentville.
The victims were sitting in a car outside a Wawa on Castor Avenue near Wyoming at 4:49 a.m., police said, when one suspect approached the driver’s side and demanded a ride. After the driver refused, police said, the suspect pointed a handgun at the men and demanded their belongings.
The suspect then allegedly stole phones, jewelry, a jacket, an unknown amount of cash and the car. He and the second suspect, a woman who was with him at the time of the incident, fled north on Castor Avenue in the victim’s car, a 1996 dark blue Toyota Corolla with tinted windows, police said.
Police released surveillance stills of the suspects inside the Wawa. One is described as a Hispanic man between 25 and 27 between 5 feet 10 and 6 feet tall and weighing 200 pounds who wore a black hooded sweatshirt with white writing on it and gray or black sweatpants. The second is described as a 25-year-old Hispanic woman weighing 115 pounds who wore a dark gray jacket and blue jeans.
