Police are on the hunt for a group of robbers that may have struck twice within the last two days in Fairhill, police said.
On Tuesday at 5:30 p.m. a man was held-up at gun point by two men on West Cambria Street near N 8th, police said. After a brief tussle the men fled empty-handed in a white Ford van.
Then Wednesday at 5:51 p.m. just two blocks away on West Clearfield Street near Franklin two men were approached by two men in their 20s clutching a silver semi-automatic, demanding the men handover their valuables.
Police said the crooks got away with a cellphone and $315. Those victims also told police the men fled in a white van.
Police are searching for three men, including the get-away driver. Anyone with information should call East Detectives at 215-686-3243.
