According to the Philadelphia Police Police, a number of armed robberies have taken place in the city’s Center City in recent weeks, and the department is now investigating these incidents.
In the early evening of Friday, shortly after 6 p.m., it occurred between 22nd and Sansom streets, and it was the most recent incidence of this type to occur.
Police said three individuals, all believed to be in their late 20s, each pointed weapons at pedestrians who were allegedly taking part in a theft of money and goods, according to the police department’s report.
As reported by the authorities, a similar type of armed robbery took place again in September of this year.
A similar robbery occurred on Tuesday in the 1800 block of Cuthbert Street, according to Action News, which obtained video evidence of the incident and posted it on the station’s website earlier this week, according to the station.
Following a thorough investigation, it was discovered that two of the victims had Rolex watches stolen from them, each worth $37,000, which had been taken away by unknown perpetrators.
When they were arrested and detained, the suspects were all clothed in black clothing and wearing Covid masks, according to the security footage captured on camera.
When the suspects reached this point, they climbed into the back of an unmarked silver Honda Accord, which officials believe to be stolen but has since been recovered and restored to its rightful owner.
According to trustworthy sources of information, the same culprits are believed to have carried out eight gunpoint robberies in the Center City region.
The most recent information available indicates that both occurrences are currently under investigation and are not likely to be resolved anytime soon, according to the information currently available.
