Police Release Sketch, Surveillance Images of Wawa Robbery Suspect

A woman was robbed outside of the Blenheim Wawa last Friday.

Police have released a composite sketch and surveillance images of a man wanted in connection with the strong-arm robbery of a woman outside of the Black Horse Pike Wawa convenience store in the township's Blenheim section.

The robbery occurred at around 2:35 a.m Friday, Dec. 9, according to police.

The victim was pushed to the ground as she approached her vehicle outside of the Wawa store located at 800 N. Black Horse Pike, police said. The suspect fled on foot with an undisclosed amount of cash.

Police describe the suspect as a dark-skinned, black male who is in his late 30s or early 40s, 6 feet to 6 feet, 3 inches tall, and weighs more than 200 pounds, with razor bumps on his face. The man was wearing a dark-blue jacket, blue jeans, a gray, knit hat and brown boots.

Police are urging anyone who may be able to identify the suspect to call police dispatch at 856-228-4500 or leave a message on the township's anonymous crime hotline at 856-842-5560 or at police@gtpolice.com.

State police helped Gloucester Township Police complete the composite sketch on Tuesday.

First the assault and robbery in the CVS parking lot on a Sunday afternoon (January 8th); then a robbery at knife-point at the Church street 7-11 last Thursday night, and now a robbery in the Blenheim Super Wawa parking lot. Does anybody think that a heightened police presence is needed in this area where three incidents have occurred in just over a month? I'd like to hear something from our Mayor about how the Township plans to make this area safe for its citizens.

This was December 9th so technically 2 months. I see plenty of police presence in town. I am also perfectly confident in this township's PD. Do you not think they are not on the case? The one low life from the 7 Eleven's struck about 4 or 5 different towns in a few counties if I recall and one being a bank in Washington Township - A Premier Community. The article is here on Patch even and was on the news as well. Did you miss that one? No towns are safe from low life pond scum. Are you still mad about the traffic cameras? Come on what is it? I've heard the Mayor speak highly of the GTPD in the past.

Oh...well if the mayor said so... Give me a break. Do I not think they are on the case? I'd be interested in knowing who you really are. Red Light cameras? Ha-ha-ha, I beat the Red Light Camera scam and the Gloucester Township prosecutor looked like I was taking the money right out of his pocket. Too funny. Anyway, back to 'on the case.' What does that mean to you? I'd be curious in your answer if you were the person beat up and robbed at the CVS or the Wawa. I don't have a problem with the police other than when I hear about injustices. In fact, I would generally consider myself a supporter of law enforcement when justice is meted out fairly and equally to all. That means when a young adult is pulled over on a DUI, no matter who it is, he or she gets ticketed and hauled in. That is as opposed to having his parents called to pick him up depending on his last name. it's called 'equal justice under the law.' Can you get that, OCNJ?

OCNJ, nothing against the police here, but believe it or not, POLITICIANS HAVE BEEN KNOWN TO LIE.
