Thugs robs a corner store with a Tec-9

Police released surveillance video of three men who robbed a Southwest Philadelphia corner store earlier this month.

The footage, taken August 8, shows three suspects enter the Jaquez Grocery Store on South 62nd Street around noon. 

One of the thugs pulls a tech-9 from his waistband and shoves it in the face of a woman working the counter, while another suspect trains a handgun on two other employees.  

A third suspect acts as a lookout. The perps forced the victims into the basement and fled with $7500.

The tec-9 wielding suspect is about 5'8, thinly built, in his late twenties and was wearing an orange baseball hat. Tipsters should call Southwest Detectives at 215.686.3183
