On December 13, 2013, at 4:49 am, two unknown males entered the Laundry Depot located at 2548 West Cheltenham Avenue in West Oak Lane wearing masks and hooded sweatshirts. One of the suspects who was armed with a handgun forced the employee to the ground handcuffing him. A customer who was also inside at the time of the robber was forced to lay face down on the floor. Both suspects then spent approximately 20 minutes attempting to gain access to an ATM machine but were unsuccessful. After taking a laptop from the office area both suspects fled on foot toward Limekiln Pike.
