Police said they are searching for a suspect who pointed a blood-filled syringe at a woman before robbing her early Saturday morning.
The victim, 32, was ordering food after work around 1:30 a.m at a Chinese restaurant in the Kensington section of Philadelphia when the suspect approached her, pointed a blood-filled syringe at her and said in Spanish, “I have AIDS, give me your money,” police told WTXF-TV.
The woman threw $200 at the suspect and the man ran away in an unknown direction, police said, adding that no one was injured.
Police describe the suspect as a Hispanic male, 30-35 years old, 5 feet 10 inches tall, with a dark complexion. He was last seen wearing a blue hoodie and Adidas track pants, WTXF noted.
