Philadelphia police are re-releasing surveillance footage of a robbery from earlier this year in the hopes that someone out there can identify the man who robbed a Hunting Park bar armed with a shotgun.

The robbery happened shortly after 10:30 p.m. on Sunday, February 13th at the Middle Brook Bar, located at 601 West Bristol Street.

Investigators say the robber walked behind the bar, pulled out a shotgun and pointed it at the bartender's face.

The suspect told the bartender to open the cash register. The video then shows the man taking about $250 and a cellphone. He then fled out the back door.
