Police Make Second Arrest In Philly Convenience Store Robbery

Posted: Updated:
PHILADELPHIA -

Police are looking for a third suspect in a violent assault and robbery last week at a Queen Village corner store.

A FOX 29 camera was in South Philadelphia when the second suspect was arrested by police just an hour after releasing surveillance video of the robbery at Queen Village Mini Mart on 3rd and Christian Streets.

The owner of the store, who identified the suspect, detailed the ordeal that happened just before closing time on November 27th.

"Three people come through the door, one of them was holding a shot gun" said store owner Asaad Mohamaad.

The video shows the brutal attack and the owner getting tased in the neck, then getting beaten by one of the suspects.

"I was trying to hold the guy to see where the shot gun is going" said Mohamaad"

The trio got away with more than $3,000 cash.

One of the suspects, Antwan Vance was arrested last week. 

Amazingly, Muhamaad tells FOX 29 one of the suspects returned to the store Monday acting like it was no big deal. He called police where they arrested him a short time later.

Muhamaad says this is the second robbery in 15 months he's been in business, but has no plans on giving up.

"I'm going to continue working for my family. If you keep working for your family I don't think anything can happen to you" said Mohamaad.

Philadelphia Police are still searching for the third suspect. If you have any information, you're asked to call 215-686-TIPS.
