Police said Friday that the search continues for several suspects behind a brazen robbery in Northeast Philadelphia.

The victim, a 21-year-old man, was abducted while getting into his car in the 6700 block of Ditman Street on September 14.

The suspects, armed with a handgun, grabbed him and pushed him into a white Chrysler 300 parked a short distance away.

Police say the suspects then covered the victim's head and bound his hands. They searched his backpack, stole his wallet, then demanded his PIN number.

Capt. Mark Burgmann of the Special Victim's Unit said the victim was understandably terrified.

"He is still pretty terrified," Burgmann said. "He is still very worried."

After the robbery, the female suspect exits the Chrysler, gets into a white Jeep Renegade, and heads to the Wawa on the 7700 block of Frankford Avenue.

She arrives at the store and is quickly followed by a man who stands around as the woman uses the victim's ATM card.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Philadelphia police.
