Suspect Pulls Off 5 Gun-Point Robberies in Less than an Hour in Old City

- Philadelphia Police are looking for the man who robbed five people at gunpoint in the course of just -40- minutes around Old City, and Society Hill.

They have surveillance video of one the incidents last Saturday night.

Video shows the man approaching a couple on the 300 block of South Fifth Street.

Just 25 minutes earlier, he targeted four men on that same block, and he also struck near the veterans war memorial on Front Street.

Neighbors are surprised.

Police say the gunman is a black male, just over six feet tall, with a thin build, clean shave, and was wearing a grey hooded sweatshirt and jeans. 

He was seen leaving in an Infinity SUV, possibly with New Jersey plates.
