It wasn't necessarily an armed robbery at a gas station in North Philadelphia, but it likely seemed that way to the victim.

The robbery was happened at shortly after 1:30 a.m. on Wednesday at a BP gas station at 1840 Ridge Avenue.

Two men were robbed at the gas station.

In one robbery, the suspect is seen using his fingers to simulate a gun, and pressed his fingers to the 32-year-old victim's back.

He said "Give me everything you got" and then stole $130, police say.

A 37-year-old was also robbed at the same store.

The suspect is described as a black male in his mid-to-late 20's standing 5'10" tall with short hair, wearing a red t-shirt underneath a black button-down shirt and black pants.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Philadelphia Police.
