Two suspects are wanted in Philadelphia after breaking into a local grocery store with an ax and holding an employee at gunpoint during a robbery last week.
Police shared surveillance footage of the armed robbery that unfolded at 2:25 a.m. Wednesday at the store on the 8200 block of West Venango Street in North Philadelphia.
One suspect can be seen pounding the store’s security door with an ax as the second suspect points a black firearm at an employee standing inside, according to the video.
After the suspects breach the door and enter the store, police said the second suspect continues to point the gun at the worker and demands money.
