Women Pulls Gun in Northeast Philly Chipotle; No Food Service at School; Infant Found in Upper Darby

Philadelphia Police are searching for a woman who threatened restaurant workers with a firearm and stole food after the store announced they were closing early due to staff shortages. It happened around 5 p.m. on Saturday, 9/18, at the Chipotle at the Roosevelt Mall at 2337 Cottman Ave. After the customers in line were informed that the store would be closing and they should place their orders online, one woman pulled a gun from her purse and asked to speak with the manager. She demanded her food be made. An employee quickly put together her order. The woman took her gun out again and said “somebody better give me my food.” She took the food and fled. If you have any information, contact police at 215.686.TIPS (8477).

Students at an elementary school in Southwest Philadelphia were not served food (breakfast or lunch) on Thursday, 9/23. It happened at S. Weir Elementary School. The food had been delivered to the school building, but no food service staff came to work. A letter was sent home to parents explaining the situation. The school tried to order pizza for the 400 students and it was served for some of them. "Yesterday the person responsible for distributing meals at Mitchell elementary did not show up for work," Monica Lewis, of the Philadelphia School District, said. "And so the policy is when that happens the school leader can call the food services team to get a roving employee to step in and assist, or have a non-food service person in their school assist the distribution of meals, that didn't happen and the principal took it upon herself to have food delivered."

"In hindsight, things definitely could have been done differently but there was food on-hand for our families and we will have communication going out to explain to families what happened yesterday," said Lewis.

Police in Delaware County are investigating after the body of a newborn was found in a plastic bag on Thursday afternoon, 9/23. The discovery was made around 4 p.m. near Snowden Road and Patterson Ave. in Upper Darbey. "Two witnesses told us that they were walking down here to go to the store and they saw what they believed was an infant. Detectives have arrived on scene and it is confirmed that it is the body of a newborn," said Superintendent Timothy Bernhardt with the Upper Darby Police Department. Pennsylvania has a Safe Haven law, that allows you to leave a newborn up to 28-days at a hospital, police station, or firehouse. “Anybody who is in any type of situation they’re not comfortable with or not sure what they can do fire house, police department, any medical facility. You can call 911. Plenty of places where you can drop a baby off,” Upper Darby Police Superintendent Timothy Barnhardt said. The investigation is ongoing.
