Spend much time at the Olney Transportation Center on the BSL? Are you a man between the ages of 17 and 20? Watch out for an armed mugger.
Northwest Philadelphia investigators say [a suspect has] targeted up to five men, ages 17 to 20, at different SEPTA stops along Broad Street including the Olney Transportation Center.
The man, seen in surveillance wearing a New Jersey Nets jacket, delivered a farfetched story about how his brother was just killed and dumped into a nearby trashcan.
Then, he told the victims not only did he have a gun pointed at them, he was wearing body armor and a wire.
The suspect is described as a black male, with dark complexion, in his 40s, about 6 feet to 6 feet 2 inches tall, with a scruffy beard and a dark build.
