Gunmen Hold Up Bar with Sawed-Off Shotgun and Can of Mace

Police are looking for two men who held up a Southwest Philadelphia bar with a sawed-off shotgun and a can of mace last night.

The men, dressed entirely in black and wearing black masks and gloves, entered the Cobbs Creek Inn on the 6200 block of Catherine Street shortly before 11:30 p.m.

The man with the shotgun demanded all of the customers get down on the ground and had them empty their pockets, while his accomplice, holding a can of mace, emptied the cash register.

The two made away with about $2,000.

The gunmen are reportedly being investigated for the robbery of up to three other bars over the past month.
