Posted: Updated:
PHILADELPHIA -

We're following a developing story in Oxford Circle where police were called out to the scene of another armed robbery at Wawa.

This one happened around 3:30 a.m. on the 6400 block of Bustleton Avenue.

The thief got away with some cash. No one was hurt. Witnesses say that the suspect wore a Scream mask and carried a tan duffel bag. He stood about 6'0'' to 6'2''.

Just last week police released surveillance video of three prior armed robberies at the same store. The prior robberies were on Oct. 1, Nov. 4 and the 21st.

The suspects seen on surveillance during those incidents wore masks of different varieties, including a skeleton mask and one from the movie "Scream." They were also armed with handguns. Furthermore, all the robberies occurred during the 3 a.m. hour.

According to police, two suspects took part in the first robbery on October 1st. Both are male. One stands about 6'0-6'2 and was wearing dark hooded sweatshirts, khakis and Timberland boots during the robberies. The other suspect is a black male standing about 5'5-5'6"; surveillance shows him with dark shoes and a blue scarf to cover his face.

One lone suspect, suspected to be the taller one, robbed the Wawa on November 4th. He was carrying a black backpack, to which he put the money inside. He was also wearing a skeleton mask.

The incident on Thursday, the 21st, was also the work of one suspect. This time, surveillance shows him wearing the Scream mask and also carrying a tan duffel bag.

If you see these suspects, police say don't approach them; call 9-1-1 immediately.

To submit a tip, call 215-686-TIPS (8477) or text one to PPD TIP (773847).

    The first half of the holiday weekend has been great and Easter Sunday looks just as nice. Clouds thin out late tonight with temperatures falling back to the 40s.

    It will be noticeably cooler and breezy at the shore with highs in the low 50s.  Quiet conditions continue into Monday.
