Teens robbed a customer inside a West Passyunk takeout eatery last week.

The 39-year-old woman was inside a Chinese takeout spot on the 2200 block of South 22nd Street when two men pushed her against the glass in the establishment and a third man grabbed her purse, which contained $300, credit cards and ID, Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. The trio fled northbound on 22nd.

One of the suspects was described as black with a medium complexion, age 17 to 18, 6-foot, thin; having a “MOB” tattooed under his right eye; and wearing a black Hollister hoody and black sweatpants. There was no description for his fellow culprits aside from them being teens.

To report information, call South Detectives’ tip line at 215-685-1635 or visit

“Where did the 'homosexual' comment come from? Something I missed, or is it being used as an unnecessary and bigoted term?”

“Everyone has an opportunity for work. especially healthy 18 year old kids. Anyone could get a job as a dish washer, grunt construction worker, military, work at temp agencies, paper boy, etc... The list goes on.

The reason why some kids don't work is because they don't want to. Period”
