Video shows suspect in Port Richmond knifepoint robbery

Cops are looking for a man who they say robbed another man of $200 at knifepoint in Port Richmond last month.

Police on Thursday released surveillance video of the alleged robber captured inside a business March 22, the day of the robbery. Authorities said he later approached a 23-year-old man on Butler Street near Aramingo Avenue from behind and pulled a knife on him, demanding money.

The pair struggled, cops said, and the robber took the victim’s wallet and fled on foot toward Richmond Street.

Cops described the assailant as a thin 6-foot white man weighing about 160 pounds with dark blond, curly, shoulder-length hair and a scruffy mustache. He wore a gray T-shirt and cap.

Tipsters should contact the East Detective Division at 215-686-3243/44 or the police tip line at 215-686-8477.
