An unknown man responsible for assaulting and robbing an employee inside her business, was caught on tape.

The man walked behind the counter at Good & Plenty Mini Market, 1201 Snyder Ave., at 10:44 a.m. March 21 and struggled with the 42-year-old female store owner, according to police. He punched her and cut her neck with a knife, forcing her to open the register. After clearing the register, he placed the undetermined amount of cash, along with some of woman’s belongings in a white plastic bag.

A 20-year-old woman entered the store during the crime, so the offender directed his attention to her, taking her wallet, cell phone, keys and $5, police said.

The robber fled north on 12th Street and west on Mercy Street where he discarded his zip-up hoodie before continuing north on 13th Street and west on McKean Street, police said. He was described as black with a dark complexion, 5-foot-7; having light facial hair; and wearing a black jacket, royal blue shirt and black sneakers with white soles.

A medic transported the employee to Thomas Jefferson University Hospital where she was treated for a laceration to her neck, according to police.

“Maybe with all of the crime, the police are just waiting it out and see how many of the hoodie bums kill the other hoodie bums.”
