Robbers Take $21,500 From Philly Bus Ternimal

PHILADELPHIA (AP) – Police say armed robbers got away with about $21,500 in an early morning holdup of the Greyhound bus terminal in Philadelphia.

Authorities say the three masked robbers approached a supervisor at the downtown terminal shortly before 3 a.m. Sunday

They took her to a cagedin area where she was ordered to page the other employees on duty. When the other employees arrived, they were also taken to the caged-in area.

Police said the robbers then ordered the supervisor at gunpoint to open a safe, and they took about $3,000 from the safe and about $21,500 from the counter area.

The suspects then ran out of a break room door and fled on foot. No injuries were reported.
