Bethlehem 7-11 robbed


A convenience store in Bethlehem was robbed at gunpoint late Tuesday.

The holdup happened around 11:55 p.m. at the 7-Eleven at 101 E. Broad St. in Bethlehem.

A man gave the store clerk the impression he had a gun in his coat pocket and handed the clerk a note demanding money, said police, adding that the clerk gave him cash, and the robber fled the scene.


The robber was described as a black man in his late 20s and standing 5 feet, 9 inches tall with a medium build. He was wearing a white winter cap with dreadlocks tucked inside, a black jacked with white stripes down the sleeves, black pants and shoes and dark sunglasses.

No one was injured in the robbery.
