Police: String of robberies plague one road in Delaware County, armed suspects sought

Authorities in a normally quiet Pennsylvania community are investigating a string of robberies involving men in ski masks approaching residents right outside their homes.

The Haverford Township Police Department said one of the robberies happened last Friday night on County Line Road when an armed man emerged from bushes to rob two people. 

The department said a similar crime happened the previous night on the 100 block of County Line Road. They shared surveillance footage that shows the suspect following the victim. 

Two more robberies involving a man in a ski mask were also reported, including one mugging that caused a woman to scream for help.


"She reported she was knocked to the ground, the suspect grabbed her handbag and pointed a gun at her," Chief John Viola told FOX 29. 

Authorities say they are looking for a Black man who is around 6-feet tall and possibly in his late-20s. They're also searching for a white man with lighter hair who is accused of driving a getaway car.

As police continue to investigate the robberies and search for the suspects, Chief Viola advised residents to lock their doors and be away of their surroundings. 

Residents of the sleepy suburb are shaken by news of several gunpoint robberies happening in their communities. 

"You never think it would be that close to home, that it would happen right across the street or down the street or whatever, but it’s very scary," Susie Williams said.
