Screwdriver-wielding man sought in eight holdups
Philadelphia police are searching for the man they believe is responsible for eight armed robberies — committed with a screwdriver — in University City this month.
All of the victims were college-age women who were approached by a screwdriver-armed man. The robber may also have a dark, four-door Oldsmobile or Buick in the area.
The attacks occurred at night, the earliest at 8:10 p.m. and the latest at 6:40 a.m. Seven attacks occurred west of 37th Street and south of Sansom Street. One attack occurred in the 3400 block of Baring Street. Officers have increased patrols in the area.
