A tattooed man robbed a local man late Wednesday night at the WaWa located on Easton and Maple roads fleeing by bike according to local authorities.

The victim did not require hospitalization, and was “more shaken up, then anything, “Lt. Joseph Knox told “The Intelligencer.”

Prior to the robbery, a homeowner reported an attempted burglary at his home on Redstone Drive, police also said.

The homeowner observed a man approaching his home. Ringing the doorbell apparently checking to see if anyone was home. When no one responded the suspect circled the residence looking for a way in, Knox told “The Intelligencer.”

A resident living close by observed the would be thief trying to break in, banged on his windows getting the attention of the suspect, who quickly fled the scene.
