Mummy Hatchet Gas Station Robbery. A man dressed as a mummy and armed with a hatchet commits a gas station robbery in Pittsburgh. Pennsylvania state police say the man wrapped his face in a dark cloth Monday afternoon.

The mummy entered the Exxon Buy N’ Fly at about 3 p.m. No one was injured, and the suspect escaped with an undisclosed amount of cash. One resident of Herminie told CBS affiliate KDKA she thought the suspect might be someone local.

“Everyone knows each other [in town], we know each other’s business, so, it’s kind of hard to get into trouble, without someone knowing what you’re doing,” she said.

Another resident attending a local neighborhood crime watch meeting at the public library in Herminie said he was surprised the suspect brandished a hatchet.

He speculated, jokingly, that perhaps his face was wrapped in cloth, “because he was cold.”

The suspect entered the gas station wearing a red, hooded sweatshirt and is believed to be white male between 5-feet-5-inches and 5-feet-9-inches tall. State police say the man is in his 30s and had several missing teeth.
