At approximately 10:16 pm on July 1, 2017 the Abington Police responded to a completed armed robbery at the Qdoba Mexican Grill, located within the Pavilion at 261 Old York Rd in the Jenkintown section of the Township. Restaurant employees reported that shortly after closing, two suspects entered and held the three employees at knife point. The suspects stole an undisclosed amount of cash from the restaurant.
- Suspect #1 was described as a black male, 5’08” to 5’10”, thin build, wearing a black hoodie pulled up, dark pants and shoes, black glove on his left hand, and a large “Freddy Kruger” style silver bladed glove on his right hand.
- Suspect# 2 was described as a black female, 5’02” to 5’4”, wearing a black hoodie with the hood pulled up, a dark baseball cap under the hood and a dark cloth covering her lower face, black pants, dark sneakers, and was armed with a large silver kitchen knife with a 12 inch blade.
The “Freddy Kruger” type bladed glove is rather distinctive. The included photo is of a similar weapon used by suspect #1.
