VIDEO: Suspect robs patrons in Nicetown bar at gunpoint

- Philadelphia Police are looking for a man they say robbed patrons inside a bar in Nicetown early Wednesday morning.

The incident occurred just before 2:00 a.m. at Franks Place Bar on the 4200 block of North 15th Street.

Police say an unknown man entered the store armed with a handgun and demanded money from the patrons. The suspect took cell phones and an unknown amount of cash, as well as a pocketbook.

Investigators say nothing was taken from the bar itself, only the patrons.
