PHILADELPHIA, PA – An armed gunman robbed a Philadelphia Checkers restaurant drive-through window and police are now asking for help to identify the subject.  The man pulled a gun on the cashier before reaching in and grabbing her by the wrist.

On December 28, 2020, at 8:20 pm, an unknown male operating a dark colored sedan pulled up to the drive-thru window and placed an order at Checkers located at 3500 Aramingo Ave. When the suspect pulled up to the pickup window a second unknown person in the rear passenger grabbed the cashier’s wrist and pointed a black handgun at her.

The cashier was able to free herself and run to the back of the store. The driver then exited the car armed with a handgun and reached in to the drive-thru window and unsuccessfully attempted to gain access to the register. The vehicle then fled and was last seen south on Aramingo Ave.
