Assault Rifle Used To Rob 'Wild & Crazy Beauty Supply Store'

Posted: Updated:
PHILADELPHIA -

Police say two guys broke out an AR-15-style assault rifle to commit a beauty supply store robbery in Hunting Park that was caught on surveillance video.

This happened Wednesday at 6:05 p.m. at the Wild & Crazy Beauty Supply store located at 4326 North Broad Street in Hunting Park.

Police say the duo entered the store with their faces covered, and one pointed the weapon at employees, demanding that they fill a dark-colored bag with money from the cash registers. The other stayed near the front door, acting as a lookout.

Police said that, after taking an undetermined amount of money, both suspects ran away in an unknown direction.

Police described both suspects as black males in their late teens to early-20s with medium builds.

The one carrying the assault rifle had his face covered with a black neoprene ski mask while wearing a black Nike hooded sweatshirt, black colored pants, an Armani Exchange belt and dark-colored sneakers. The other had an animal print mask, wore a gray hooded Adidas sweatshirt with a logo in black on the front, dark colored pants and gray sneakers with bright red laces.

If you see these suspects, police say don't approach them; call 9-1-1 immediately. To submit a tip, call 215-686-TIPS (8477) or text to PPD TIP (773847).

If you have any information about this crime or these suspects, please contact Northwest Detectives Division at 215-686-3353/3354.
