Man Shot in Foiled Armored Truck Heist

A flurry of gunshots sent a would-be robber to the hospital Saturday after he allegedly attempted to rob an armored truck in Cheltenham.

Around 12:45 this afternoon an armored car pulled up to the back of the Pathmark in the Cedarbrook Plaza Shopping Center on Cheltenham Avenue and Easton Road.

When the armored car security officer went inside the Pathmark he was approached by a man who pepper sprayed him. The security officer pulled out his gun and started firing, hitting the suspect.

The man fled but then collapsed behind the building. The suspect was transported to Einstein.

The suspect’s condition is unknown.
