Armed Robbery at the AT&T Store


We just got word of a robbery at the AT&T store at 38th and Walnut via the increasingly more frequent/terrifying/effective DPS text service. Fortunately there were no injuries reported, but the Penn (and Philly!) Police are investigating and advising students to stay out of the area. Safe to say this is a good excuse to make the weekend last a little longer and skip that first class.

Got any info? Send along to tips@underthebutton.com.

Update: AT&T's closed for the moment and there's undercover cop car parked out front, but no further updates from DPS. Apart from the armed robber on the loose, everything seems to have returned to normal. DP coverage here.
