At 7:45 p.m. Monday, a Standard Parking hire stated she was working Gate A at the Wells Fargo Center, 3601 S. Broad St., when an unknown figure approached her from behind and stuck something in her back, Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. She shoved him away, yet the individual reportedly dug the item, which the victim believes could have been a gun, into her back and barked “Just give it up.” She complied by giving the man approximately $8,040.
Officers on mounted patrol were working a detail at the entertainment venue when learning of the robbery. A witness point out a running man to them, leading them to stop Kwame Grove. Following positive identification by the worker, they detained the 25-year-old Southwest Philly resident, recovering a weapon but no cash. They charged him with robbery, theft by unlawful taking, receiving stolen property, firearms violations, possession of an instrument of crime, and simple assault. He had not posted his $250,000 bail as of press time and awaits an April 12 preliminary hearing.
