Armed robbery suspects sought
Suspects are sought in connection with an armed robbery earlier this month in Abington, according to the Abington Township Police Department. Abington Township police officers responded to a call for service around 2:06 a.m. on July 11 along the 1600 block of Rockwell Road in Abington. Officers observed an 18-year-old man “bleeding profusely from his head,” according to a statement from police. “The victim stated an unknown male demanded money from him, and then struck him in the face with a handgun,” police said in a statement.
Officers then found another victim who told police he was “friends with the first victim, and they had been walking to meet some other friends.” He said that they observed two men wearing hoodies and ski masks approach them. He went on to say that they ran, and “a second suspect chased this victim and caught up to him on the porch of a home.” The suspect was described as also wearing jeans and red shoes. “The suspect pointed a black handgun with a laser sight at him and said, “give that s*** up,’” police said. “The suspect stole the victim’s cash and his sneakers, before fleeing the area.”
Both victims were later taken to an area hospital, according to police. Authorities are continuing the investigation. Preliminary reports indicate “the suspects may have been known to the victims, and that this was not a random assault,” police said. Anyone with information should call the Abington Township Police Department’s Detective Division at 267-536-1100.
