3 sought for armed robberies at 5 Harrisburg businesses


Harrisburg police are looking for three armed robbers who hit five businesses in less than four hours on Saturday evening.

Investigators released surveillance photos of the robbers, who were armed with handguns and a rifle with a scope.

The robberies occurred in the 2300 block of North Sixth Street, the 2100 block of Moore Street, the 200 block of Verbeke Street, and the 600 block of Division Street, all between 6:25 p.m. and 9:41 p.m., police said in a news release Monday.

Al’s Cafe, Beer King, V&E Mini Market, Sayford Supermarket, and Los Brothers Supermarket were all targeted by the robbers.

“Three people, they come with a gun,” said Dary Rojas, manager of Los Brothers Supermarket. “One go down there, put the gun at my head. They told me, ‘give me all the money, put the money in the bag’, and dropped my phone. They broke my phone and everything and they left.”

Back on the job Monday, Rojas said he won’t live in fear.

“I got nervous, but you know I had to do it. That’s the job,” he said.

Rojas said he could not get a good look at the robbers’ faces because they were covered.

Dauphin County Crime Stoppers is offering a reward of up to $2,000 for information that leads to an arrest.  

Anyone with information should call Harrisburg police at 717-255-3175.
