Man Robs Pennsylvania Wawa Twice in Two Days

Oops he did it again. A man robbed a Wawa in Chester Heights Borough twice over the weekend, and is now being hunted by the police.

The first robbery attempt happened before 10 p.m. on Saturday at the Stoneybank Wawa located at 36 Baltimore Pike. Police said that the suspect entered the Wawa and went to the register for his purchase. He then took out his hand gun and demanded money from the cashier.

The suspect was not able to get any money from the register, and so he fled on foot empty-handed.

The following day, he gave his robbery plans another shot. Before 6:30 p.m. on Sunday, police said they believe the same man entered the Wawa and went to the register for his purchase. He went on again with the same act- displaying a handgun and demanding money from the register staff.

The man was ‘successful’ in his second attempt as he fled the scene on foot carrying an undisclosed amount of money.

The suspect is described as a black male, with thin build, anywhere between 5’8”- 6-‘0 in height, no facial hair, and wearing an all-black ensemble, and with a gray knit winter hat.

The police believe the possibility that the suspect was wearing the same clothing during the two incidents.

Authorities are seeking the help of the public. Anyone with information on the fleeing suspect is requested to call Pennsylvania State Police at 484-840-1000.
