Robbery – 7-11 Store, 1837 Old York Road, Abington
At approximately 8:07 PM on July 26, 2016, the male pictured below entered the 7-11 and demanded all of the cash from the register. The male lifted his jacket and implied he had a gun but none was seen. The male fled on foot south on Old York Road and possibly east on Parkview Avenue. This same suspect also robbed the 1837 Old York Road 7-11 on January 7, 2015 at 9:20 PM (APD 15-000844). In that case the suspect removed a black, semi-automatic handgun from his waistband and demanded cash. In both cases the clerk was the only other person in the store and there were no injuries. The suspect is described as a black male, 18-25 years of age, 5’11” to 6’2” tall, possibly with a goatee and a broad nose. Anyone with information about this suspect’s identity or with other information about either of these robberies is urged to call Abington Police at 267-536-1100 and select option #3. In an emergency or for an immediate police response always dial 9-1-1.
