Authorities have announced an arrest in a string of robberies at Wawa convenience stores in Delaware County.

Police say Rezekiel Harris, 34, of Philadelphia has confessed to three separate robberies at Wawa stores in Lansdowne, Upper Darby and Bryn Mawr.

The Bryn Mawr robbery happened February 9th at 11:00 p.m. inside the Wawa on the 200 block of South Bryn Mawr Avenue.

Police say Harris, wearing an Old Navy sweatshirt, was armed with a handgun, which went off during the course of the robbery.

A bullet hit the floor and sent debris flying into the air, striking a 44-year-old male store employee in the arm.

An undisclosed amount of money was taken.

Harris is currently awaiting processing with Upper Darby Township Police relating to the robbery charges which occurred in Upper Darby Township.

Police are still on the hunt for a second suspect, who held the doors closed during the Bryn Mawr robbery and who fled the scene with Harris.
