The Philadelphia Police Department has not yet commented on the recent incident at the Wawa in the County of Mayfair.
The department earlier this month added security just ten miles away in Center City, where a number of Wawa locations and other businesses were attacked by a group of young offenders.
Police said some of the youths in the incident were taken into custody.

The unknown suspect was seen breaking into the same Wawa after the incident on Saturday, September 8, robbing the store at gunpoint and taking $250.
Three days later, the gunman robbed the Wawa on Roosevelt Boulevard, this time stealing $200.
Wawa has offered a $5,000 reward for information leading to his arrest.
