PHILADELPHIA (WNEP) -- A man who allegedly robbed a pharmacy in Philadelphia flashed a demand note that said he needed the money for his sick child, police said.
In the video released by Philadelphia police, the suspect entered a Rite Aid store January 3 and took an item to the register.
Police say the suspect handed a note to the clerk that read: “Give me all the money. I’m sorry, I have a sick child. You have 15 seconds.”
The video shows the suspect reach into his pocket and lean over the counter before the clerk opened the register and put an undetermined amount of cash into the same plastic bag. The suspect then stuffed the bag in his pockets and fled on foot, police said.
The man did not show a weapon to the clerk during the robbery, Philadelphia Police said.
