Selling the drama


Two teenagers became robbery and assault victims in West Passyunk.

At approximately 7 p.m. July 6, police met with the complainants on the 2500 block of Wolf Street, learning from the chief adolescent that he had been in the area to sell his motorcycle, Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. While he was showing the item to a quartet of individuals, the primary offender pulled out a handgun and demanded “Give me everything out of your pockets.”

Two more members of the party punched the complainants’ acquaintance, with the final figure hopping on the motorcycle and driving eastbound on Wolf Street toward 24th Street. The others fled on foot, with two going northbound on 25th Street and the last one fleeing westbound on Wolf Street toward housing authority units.

The victims described the attackers as black, with the first being 5-foot-8 to 5-foot-9; having light skin and tattoos on his forearms; and wearing a white T-shirt and black pants; the second as the same height range; having a dark complexion; and wearing a black T-shirt, gray shorts, and white sneakers; the third as approximately 6 foot; having medium-length hair and a dark complexion; and wearing a tan Polo shirt, black jeans, and white sneakers; and the fourth as 5-foot-7; being 15 or 16 years old; having a dark complexion; and wearing a black T-shirt and the same color shorts and sneakers.
