Philadelphia Police are searching for a man who used a baby stroller to wheel away several stolen TVs from the Mann Music Center in Fairmount Park earlier this month. The burglar was caught on video. It happened on July 9th at the concert venue located at 5201 Parkside Ave. in West Philadelphia. The man was wearing a red Nike shirt, jean shorts, and a red baseball cap. He pushed the empty stroller up to the gates and then broke inside. He stole three flat screen TVs from inside concession tents and slide them under the gate. The man then loaded the TVs into the stroller and walked away. If you have any information, call Southwest Detectives at 215-686-3183 or 3184. Watch the video below:

Philadelphia Police are searching for three suspects wanted for an armed robbery at a Chipotle restaurant in Northeast Philadelphia on Monday night, 7/29. It happened after 9:30 p.m. on the 2300 block of Cottman Avenue. Three masked men, two of which were armed with a gun, entered through the back door and announced a robbery to the employees and customers. They made off with $4,000 from the register and safe. No one was injured. Police believe this robbery is connected to two other similar robberies that targeted Popeyes restaurants over the weekend. This Chipotle is actually right next door to another Popeyes. Police believe the suspects changed plans and rushed inside when an employee walked out the back door of the Chipotle restaurant. Anyone with any information is asked to call police at 215-686-TIPS.

Temple University has tentatively agreed to sell Fox Chase Cancer Center to Thomas Jefferson University. A final sales price will be determined once the final agreement is completed. Jefferson will now have the Fox Chase and the Sidney Kimmel Cancer Centers, which are both designated by the National Cancer Institute. Students from each institution will also benefit from the collaboration by gaining access to specialty resources at each school. Fox Chase employs around 2,000 people and has 100 beds. See below for a joint statement.

To the Temple community:

As we told you earlier this year, Temple University and Thomas Jefferson University entered into an exclusive agreement to negotiate the potential sale of Fox Chase Cancer Center and Temple's interest in the Health Partners Plan. We are pleased to report that those talks have proven successful. This announcement offers more information on our progress.

All of these efforts are part of our plan to ensure the future of outstanding clinical care for the North Philadelphia community and beyond, and maintaining our unique research and educational mission, while finding a partner that can enhance Fox Chase's future growth. We believe the final agreement with Jefferson will meet those objectives.

In addition, our conversations with Jefferson have prompted some very exciting ideas about how we can join with other health care groups in the city to save St. Christopher's Hospital for Children, a vital component of this community's health care for underserved youth.

We have also started conversations to create opportunities for Jefferson's students to benefit from Temple's expertise and national reputation in areas such as business, engineering and law.

As we finalize the details of the agreement with Jefferson and open new avenues for exploration, we want to thank all of you for your continued commitment to high quality health care, research and education. We deeply value your dedication to Temple University, our neighbors and the Philadelphia region.
