Robbery suspect tries, and fails, to disguise himself with plastic bag

SOUTH PHILADELPHIA, Pa. (WPVI) -- Philadelphia police are looking for an armed robbery suspect who tried, and failed, to disguise himself with a clear plastic bag.

Surveillance cameras captured the suspect pacing around outside the Dunkin Donuts on the 300 block of Oregon Avenue back on July 6th.

After a few minutes, the man decided to strike.

He placed the transparent bag over his head and made a beeline for the counter.

After hopping over it, the robber pulled out a knife and grabbed a box containing cash.

The suspect then lost the plastic disguise while trying to escape.

If you recognize the man behind the clear cover-up, call the South Detective Division at 215-686-3013/3014.
