WILKINSBURG (KDKA) — Police are hoping that images captured by surveillance cameras will help lead them to a suspect wanted in a broad daylight armed robbery in Wilkinsburg over the weekend.

Detectives say the man robbed the Celebrity Wireless story in the 700-block of Penn Avenue around 3 p.m. on Saturday.

The suspect is described as an African-American man in his early- to mid-twenties, about 5’6” tall.

The man was seen wearing a black coat, light-colored jeans, a black ski mask and a black skull cap.

Authorities say he should be considered armed and dangerous.

Anyone who recognizes the suspect is asked to call police at 412-244-2950.
