Police are looking for suspect in Rite Aid robbery on 5th Street.

The Philadelphia police uploaded a video showing a Jan. 22 robbery in the Rite Aid on the 5600 block of North 5th Street.

Police say the suspect walked into the store at around 6:38 p.m., asked an 18-year-old employee for a pack of cigarettes and made a gun motion in his jacket’s pocket. The video shows the employee handing the suspect cash from the register. The suspect fled the store and police say he was last seen walking south on 5th Street.

The suspect was described as a Black male wearing a two-toned grey jacket, a grey hoodie, faded jeans, grey and dark colored mismatched gloves and a black book bag.

If you have any information or tips, contact the 35th police district at 215-686-3353.
