PHILADELPHIA Philadelphia police have charged a man with robbing a Pennsport coin laundry and assaulting a worker with a hammer. A second person is still at large.
About 10 a.m. Wednesday, police said, two men entered the Kin Laundromat on the 1800 block of East Moyamensing Avenue.
They approached a 58-year-old worker and one said, "Give me the money." One hit the worker over the head with what the victim believed to be a hammer, police said.
The second man took about $700 from a filing cabinet before fleeing.
