Police release surveillance video of North Philadelphia aggravated assault

- Philadelphia Police have released surveillance video of an aggravated assault in North Philadelphia.

The incident occurred at the Family Dollar store on the 2200 block of West Cambria Street on Sunday at 1:26 p.m.

Police say an unknown black male, along with a juvenile, entered the store at that time. After they walked around in the store for several minutes, the man and juvenile attempted to leave the store.

An employee of the store stopped the man for investigation in reference to taking items without paying and he became agitated before being asked to leave.

Ten minutes later, the same man returned to the store and stood by the door with his hand inside his pocket, partially displaying a handgun.

The man then said to the employee, “this is for you.” Then he fled the area on foot in an unknown direction.

No injuries were reported and no shots were fired during the incident.

The suspect is described as a black male with a medium complexion, 30-40 years-of-age, medium build, wearing a pullover ski mask, dark-colored jacket and dark-colored pants.
