- Philadelphia Police are looking for a man they say robbed a woman in the city's Feltonville neighborhood last Friday.

 The incident occurred around 6:16 p.m. as the 29-year-old female victim walked down the 4600 block of C Street.

As the woman walked, surveillance video shows a man approaching her, and pushing her into a fence.

Police say the suspect told the woman "give me the phone or I will shoot you" as he pressed an object against her back. When the victim refuses, the suspect demands the phone, and threatens her again.

The suspect managed to take her iPhone 7 Plus from her coat pocket, and fled east on the 300 block of East Wyoming Avenue.

Police have described the suspect as a Hispanic male, standing 5'5" with a medium build and complexion. He is believed to be in his mid-30s with a Spanish accent.
