A couple who were in the process of moving were robbed at gunpoint last month inside a Wissinoming home, police said.

The suspect, who was caught on camera, walked through the open door of the property on the 2000 block of Sanger Street around 4:30 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 8, while a 42-year-old man and his 45-year-old girlfriend were packing and cleaning, authorities said.

He pointed a gun at the couple and demanded their money and cell phones. After grabbing $1,900 in cash and two phones, he fled the scene, heading eastbound toward Torresdale Avenue, according to police.
