Police Seek Help in ID’ing Two Suspects in Southwest Phila Robbery (VIDEO)

Police are asking for the public’s help in identifying two men who robbed a Southwest Philadelphia store Friday afternoon:

A man walked into Zam Zam Market at 7333 Elmwood Avenue at 3:55 p.m. armed with a revolver and made off with about $100 in cash.

The suspect ran out to a green 1995 Jeep Cherokee, driven by a second man, that was waiting outside. The Zam Zam employee followed the suspects to 2nd Street in Darby, where they parked the Jeep and fled on foot.
