Although doing some morning stretches is just what the doctor ordered, we doubt that his prescription referred to doing them before robbing a store. As unlikely as it would might sound, the Philadelphia Police Department is currently searching for an individual who robbed a Dunkin Donuts shop on the 22nd of April and who was caught on the surveillance camera doing a couple of stretches before the actual robbery.
Philadelphia Dunkin Donuts Robbed
According to a Philadelphia Police Department spokesperson, on the 22nd of April, at approximately 7:00 am, an African-American citizen, armed with a handgun, entered the Dunkin Donuts store, located at 4701 North Broad Street, with the intent of robbing it. The investigators declared that the individual emerged several minutes later after he managed to empty the shop’s cash register. However, this was not the oddest part of the Philadelphia Dunkin Donuts robbery.
Prior to entering the shop, the individual did something that attracted the authorities’ attention. A security camera mounted outside the Dunkin Donuts shop depicts the robber taking a respite in front of the shop before entering it. Furthermore, it appears that the man actually started to do a few stretches, probably to get ready for the robbery.
Robber Does Stretched Before Theft
According to the Dunkin Donuts employee’s testimony, as soon as the robber entered the shop, he jumped behind the counter, weapon high, and calmly told him that he has 20 seconds to open the cash registry and to hand him the day’s earnings.
The teller said he reluctantly opened the register and placed all the money inside the blue shopping bag the robber handed him. According to the authorities, the man managed to steal approximately $350 from the Dunkin Donuts shop. Fortunately, no one has been injured during the incident, and no shots were fired.
However, the authorities have yet to identify the assailant. To this end, the Philadelphia Police Department Northwest Detective Division has asked the help of the public in the hope of identifying and capture the Dunkin Donuts robber.
On the day he robbed the shop, the robber wore rubber gloves, black sneakers, and a black sweatshirt with a hood. Also, the authorities described the assailant as having a medium athletic build and being at least 6 foot tall. Caution is advised when tackling the suspect, as the Philadelphia detective believe that he might be dangerous, meaning that he won’t hesitate to use his handgun if he feels threatened.
