Man charged in fatal Valentine's Day stabbing of Roger Segal outside South Philly Wawa

Philadelphia police have made an arrest in the death of Roger Segal earlier this year. 

Segal, 49, died after being stabbed in the parking lot of the Wawa on South Columbus Boulevard in South Philadelphia on February 14, police say. 

According to a police source, video surveillance showed Segal entering the store around 2 a.m. before returning to his car with food 20 minutes later. 

Police later responded after a customer reported a man may be sleeping in his car, but when officers arrived on scene, they found Segal stabbed once in the stomach.  

Roger Segal, 49, was found fatally stabbed in his parked car outside a South Philadelphia Wawa.

Authorities say the car engine was still running and his foot was still pressed firmly on the brake. 

On Monday at District Attorney Larry Krasner's weekly gun violence update, the arrest of a suspect was announced. 


Authorities say investigators obtained surveillance footage of the Wawa and arrested a suspect last week after obtaining an arrest warrant. 

According to a press contact from the District Attorney's Office, the suspect has been identified as 55-year-old Walter Robbins. 

Robbins is being held without bail and has been charged with murder, robbery and related charges. 

No additional information was provided.
