Philadelphia Police need your help finding a man who robbed a Woodland Avenue supermarket and then attempted to rob a Paxon Street coffee shop last week.

According to police, a man walked into the Woodland Supermarket on Thursday in the afternoon, went behind the counter and showed the market's owner a gun. Police say the man demanded the owner open the register.

The suspect then stuffed between $300 and $500 into his sweatshirt pocket and left, according to investigators.

Police believe the same suspect walked into the Coffee Deli on the 200 block of North 50th Street a day later, pointed a gun at a business owner and demanded they open the cash register.

Police say the owner began to scream, prompting the suspect to leave the shop without taking anything. He was seen running westbound from the shop.

Police describe the suspect as a black man, between 20-25 years of age with a thin build. He was last seen wearing a light blue hooded sweatshirt with a white t-shirt underneath, tan khaki pants and black and white sneakers.

You can view surveillance video of the sup sect on the Philadelphia Police YouTube Channel.

If you have any information, you're asked to call police at 215-686-TIPS (8477) or by text at 773847.
