Posted: Updated:

Police are looking for a man who robbed the Maria Mini Market in North Philadelphia.

On May 4, 2014, at 1:55pm, police say an unknown man wearing a mask entered the Maria Mini Market located at 2450 West Montgomery Avenue armed with a handgun pointing it at an employee demanding money.

Police describe the suspect as Black male, 23-28 years-of-age, mustache, small goatee, medium build, tattoo of a name on his right arm, possible small scar of birth mark on his left knuckle, and may live in the area of James W. Johnson Homes located at 2500 West Norris Street.
