On August 31 at 12:08am, Cheltenham Township Police responded to a report of an armed robbery of a motor vehicle.
The incident took place in the parking lot of the 7-Eleven store located at 250 S. Easton Rd. in the Glenside section of Cheltenham Township. The victim reported that he observed two black males between the ages of 16-20 standing outside a silver crossover-style SUV. A third male remained in the front passenger side of this vehicle. The two males outside of the vehicle donned surgical masks and approached the victim asking for a lighter. As the males got closer they displayed handguns and ordered the victim to hand over his vehicle. The victim complied and the three suspects left in the silver vehicle and the victim’s blue 2007 Toyota Highlander bearing PA Reg.: GLR8129.
The suspects were last seen southbound on Easton Rd. toward Philadelphia. A short time later the three suspects were observed on security camera with a possible male get-away driver at a convenience store in Philadelphia attempting to use the victim’s debit card.
