7-Eleven Robbed Twice in a Week
A total of $300 was taken from the cash register.
The 7-Eleven convenience store on City Avenue in Bala Cynwyd was robbed twice in five days last week, Lower Merion police told news media Tuesday afternoon.
The first incident happened about 5:45 a.m. Tuesday, Aug. 28. A thin, light-skinned black man with a bandana over his face walked into the store and demanded money from the cashier, police said.
The cashier opened the register, and the robber took about $200, then fled to Oakland Terrace. No weapon was seen, police said.
In the second incident, a man with a handgun entered the store about 3:10 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 1, police said. The man—described only as a black man in a gray or black sweatshirt—pointed the gun at the clerk and demanded money, police said.
The clerk handed over about $100, and the robber ran to Oakland Terrace.
No surveillance footage or stills were available Tuesday from Lower Merion police.
