Police have released a new surveillance video showing a man robbing a Northeast Philadelphia business with a large knife.

The cameras captured the robber inside the La Pablanida store on Castor Avenue back on January 17.

The clerk says the man asked for cigarettes, then pulled out a knife and demanded money.

Once the register was open, the robber grabbed cash and then left the store.

Fortunately, the worker wasn't hurt.
