The FBI and the Philadelphia Police Department’s Violent Crimes Task Force are seeking the public’s assistance to identify and locate the subject responsible for the armed robbery last week of the Freedom Credit Union branch located at 4900 Princeton Ave.

At about 2:15 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 17, the subject entered the credit union and approached the counter. He presented a threatening demand note to a teller, then lifted his sweatshirt to display a gun tucked into his waistband. After obtaining an undisclosed amount of cash, the subject fled the area of the credit union. He was last seen heading south on Tulip Street.

The subject is described as a white male in his late 20s to early 30s, about 5 feet 10 to 5 feet 11 inches tall, with a thin build and a short and scruffy “ginger” beard. He was wearing a white hooded sweatshirt, dark-colored pants and a black brimmed hat with ear flaps.

This subject is considered armed and dangerous. Anyone with information about the armed robbery or this individual is urged to call the Violent Crimes Task Force at 215–418–4000. There is a reward for information leading to the man’s capture. Tipsters can remain anonymous. ••
