Caught on video: Burglary at Center City deli
CENTER CITY - October 3, 2013 (WPVI) -- Philadelphia police are trying to track down a bandit who broke into a Center City deli.
In surveillance video captured by the Pac-A-Deli grocery at 12th and Walnut, the suspect is seen surveying his surroundings.
As cars pass in the background, the video shows the suspect with a rock in his hand.
He backs away then makes his way to the front door and smashes the glass.
