AC Boardwalk Store Owner Dies After Robbery; SEPTA Bus Hits/Kills Man; Locked Out Tenants Back Home

Business owners on the Atlantic City Boardwalk protested on Friday night, 4/2, demanding more police protection after a store owner died following an attempted robbery on Thursday evening, 4/1. The robbery happened shortly after 7:30 p.m. at the City Souvenirs store on the 1500 block of the Boardwalk. Police were called to a report that "multiple juveniles were damaging the store and assaulting individuals." A 12-year-old boy brandished a knife and threatened 66-year-old store owner Mehmood Ansari. After officers arrived, Ansari collapsed. He was taken to AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center where he was pronounced dead. An autopsy will determine cause of death. The 12-year-old was arrested and charged with robbery, weapons offenses, simple assault, terroristic threats, conspiracy and shoplifting. A 14-year-old girl was also arrested and faces charges of robbery, simple assault, shoplifting and conspiracy. Ansari ran City Souvenirs for 30 years.

The Atlantic City Merchants Association organized the protest. "The Atlantic City Police Department is aware of the concerns and complaints from the business community, regarding juveniles," said Interim Officer in Charge James Sarkos. "As the weather turns warmer, the Atlantic City Police Department will work and coordinate with businesses along our famous Boardwalk and retail areas. We are working closely with the Atlantic County Prosecutor's Office on this investigation."

A man was struck and killed by a SEPTA bus in Philadelphia early Saturday morning, 4/3. The man was walking along Frankford Avenue near Margaret Street in the city's Frankford section when he was hit. He was pronounced dead at the scene. The cause of the crash is under investigation.

Over a dozen tenants of the Moscow & Monica apartment buildings were able to return to their apartments after being illegally locked out by their landlord. Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro stepped in when owner Gagandeep Lakhmna violated a judge's order from March 15 to allow them back in. Earlier this week, the same judge found him in contempt and fined him around $23,000. "In my office, we'll be here to step in so you are treated fairly when you're targeted by illegal predatory practices like what happened here,” Shapiro said.
