NORTHERN LIBERTIES (WPVI) -- A gun-toting suspect is wanted for robbing a cell phone store in Philadelphia's Northern Liberties section.

It happened around 8:00 p.m. at the Verizon Wireless store near 3rd and Spring Garden streets.

Police say the suspect, a man believed to be in his 20s, walked into the store and announced a holdup.

After getting away with about 20 phones, mostly iPhones, the suspect fled the scene.

No employees were harmed.

Police are hoping the store's security cameras caught footage of the bandit.
