Police in Upper Providence are looking for a bandit captured on surveillance video robbing a yogurt store armed with what appears to be a submachine gun.
The armed robbery of the Kiwi Yogurt at Providence Town Center occurred in the township's Collegeville section shortly after the store opened at noon on Saturday.
A white male dressed in a hoodie entered and pulled "a weapon resembling" a Heckler and Koch MP5 9mm submachine gun from a dark bag. He then ordered two patrons - a man and a little girl - and employees to the ground, police said.
Three female employees ran to the back of the store and out the rear door. The robber followed them, police say, and demanded that a woman sitting at a desk to open the store's safe. But the employee told the robber that she could not open the safe.
