The Philadelphia Police Department's Northeast Detectives Division is looking to identify the suspect who robbed Beer Town Beverage in Parkwood Manor. Surveillance captures the whole incident, from entry to exit.

Here's the Suspect Description, based on surveillance and police: White male, 5'6". During the robbery, he was wearing a blue and gray jacket, black pants, and a black ski mask.
