Police released surveillance video of a suspect sought in robbing three city pizza shops, including Mom’s Bake at Home Pizza on 219 E. Willow Grove Ave.

According to the video, the suspect is sought for three robberies between July 29 and August 3. The August 3 robbery was of Mom’s where the suspect, a black man wearing a ski mask, entered the shop, pointed a gun at employees and had employees fill a paper bag with $190 from the register. He then fled on foot in each case. The video shows the suspect doing the same at two seperate pizza places, not Mom’s.

Police believe the suspect is a black male between the ages of 16 and 20, and between 5’8″ and 5’11″

Anyone with information should call Northwest Detectives at 215-686-3353
