7:03 am
possibility. >> you know, tria cafe is in town. one got rob. there they go, it goes almost all the way down to city hall. >> nice work in the control room. >> maybe that is what they are doing communication lines down to the parkway. >> bob kelly said he asked them and that is what they told him. >> okay. >> so that was our source. >> we have confirmation of it then. >> that in fact is there bob still talking to him. >> there is a lot of people around our area like eat at these tria cafes. >> is there three in this city it wasn't calm at all when two suspects robbed this place. >> thinks the one at 11th and spruce. there is sabina. >> reporter: good morning, guys, as we have been saying this beast came an active scene yet again. police just arrived back here at tria cafe a short time ago. a second car pulled up as we were stack out here. let's pan over. you can see police officers right now leaving the cafe.
7:04 am
it looks like they went inside and interviewed employees let them in. two employees inside. they have been looking for more clues. sometimes they come back later in the day for surveillance video. you can see they are getting back in their vehicles this morning. let look at video gathered for you overnight just after all this happened. it happened around 1:30 this morning. police say two arm men with what police say was a fake weapon rob the bar. they got away with about four bank bags filled with $1,500 in cash. then they took off. police say this morning they are still on the loose. we don't have have a description. police are not releasing too many details just yet. i want to talk about tria cafe. i have talk to one of our produce hours lives in the neighborhood. she said it is a very packed bar especially on the weekend. on sunday they have something called sunday school which is when they offer lessons on wine and cheese and they have discounted fare. so she says it is very pack. those nights as well. of course this happened just after closing.
7:05 am
closing happens at 1:00 o'clock this incident happening at 1:30. so right now we can see, live on the scene, this investigation is still unfolding, as police try to track down these two suspects who robbed tria cafe of four bank bags. those are the bags that they use to store their cash as they helped over to the bank to deposit later on. those suspects still on the loose, guys. >> somebody knew something. >> um-hmm. 705:67:89 developing right now police in france are looking for a group of gunman who broke in the discount clothing store near paris this morning. suspects trapped 18 people, they were employees, inside for hours, before getting a way. >> well, the city is still on, you know, tense, high alert because of the terrorist attacks. part of that, played out in a clothing store. officials have started the manhunt, throughout the suburbs. they say all 18 people, who were inside, and being held hostage for a little while, were safely evacuated from the least tail store and then nobody was injured, but the
7:06 am
gun man are still out there. >> they said at this point they don't believe it was a hostage situation they had said armed robbery that went south. >> yeah. a deal has been reached preventing greece from a total financial collapse this happened three hours ago. >> it really does, in the nick of time as banks nearly rang out of money. greece banks. residents were limited to $57 a day but financial institutions are now, in a position to get help from the european central bank. and is there in word as to what were the exact terms of the deal but during the negotiations, germany called on greece to transfer billion of assets, to an independent trust, and out of reach, out of greek politicians. deal was reached early this morning following a large protest, in atens, greece just yesterday. >> france's president, to the bitter end kicking and screaming didn't want this. it looks like a break through this morning, at the iran nuclear talks. a deal that could cut back nuclear capability, in exchange for sanctions relief. we're getting close to this.
7:07 am
two diplomates say negotiators plan to announce in a few hours that they have reached a deal, final details of the provisional pack are still being worked out, once it is complete, a formal final agreement would be opened to review by officials in the capitols of iran and six world powers at the the talks. u.s. officials working on this deal are optimistic. if negotiators make this deal it could limit iran's uranium production for up to ten years. but here's the sticking point, u.s. congress, will also have a say in whether the final deal is enacted.
7:08 am
>> 7:07. an all out manhunt is underway, for that man, joachim dues man also known as el chapo, for short because he is very short. well, guzman escaped from mexico's top security prison through an elaborate tunnel under the shower in his cell. it was a mile long tunnel to a home being conduct. that is where he popped out. investigators are questioning 30 workers to figure out who helped him escape. mexico's president says he is confident he will get caught. >> a fire overnight in the city of chester. >> yeah, the blaze, in the 300 block of broomall street started just after 3:00 this morning. fire officials say the building that caught fire was abandoned but the fire spread to a home next door, which was, occupied. those residents got out safely, nobody was hurt. also new this morning police are investigating a double shooting in ogontz. it happened shortly before 11:00 p.m. police say a 21 year-old man and 46 year-old woman were
7:09 am
found shot in the 16 hup block of widener place. both victims were taken to einstein hospital. >> but then just a couple blocks away and hour later police found, 20 shell casing at 21st and nedrow. witnesses say the the man fired several shots riding by on his bicycle. police did not find any victims and they are looking to see if the two incidents are related. an attempted lawn rescue in the delaware river came to a saddened last night. divers did find the body of the man who jumped in the water for a swim yesterday afternoon but did not make it out. the four three-year old victim was on a boat with at least one other person. the coastguard and new jersey state police block the river, while they searched for the man. currents can be very strong, in that particular part of the river. and philadelphia police say a woman was trying to pass another car when she went into the wrong are rain, and then struck a man on the bicycle this happened on the 4100 block of north second street, sunday afternoon. the the victim died at the scene and suspects fled.
7:10 am
police caught up to her, and at seventh and atlantic and they took her into custody. funeral arrangements have the not yet been announced for a 29 year-old scranton police officer, john wilding. he was running after three teen robbery suspects, saturday, when witnesses say, that while chasing him he had to jump a fence. he didn't realize there was a 15-foot drop, that was on the other side of that fence. officer wilding hit his head and then died the next day. the three, 17 years old were arrested, officer wilding leaves behind a wife and two children. he is the first scranton officer to indict in the line of duty in nearly 30 years. 7:10. quite a surprise or catch for a trio of fisherman in brigantine. >> they pulled in a couple sharks. but with all of the shark talk we thought it would be interesting to have steve go
7:11 am
to brigantine. there is steve. >> reporter: hopefully we will teach people about the brown shark or the sandbar shark, and it is more commonly known that was caught here. let's show you the the picture. a couple of guys from cinnaminson, a father and son, chris up dike, taking photographs, from our man, scott, the writer here on fox 29 that lives a at brigantine. they are out fishing quarter of 6:00 simultaneously catch, two, zanzibar sharks, and these are juveniles. that is why they are not big. yes, people, they did let them go, but they posed for pictures in the sand, and then, they saw the sharks, a safely swim back into the ocean, and then these are the most common sharks in these waters, and they are considered, by experts, to be the most safe sharks, to humans. never, ever, biting them apparently except in annex stream case that somebody hasn't heard about in a hundred years. these are the kind of sharks you see in aquariums so much a lot bigger and a lot wider in fact. this is probably the star of
7:12 am
the show at the acquire number in camden because it is biggest shark in the tank. it looks mean, tough, it looks like a man the other. it looks like it could eat three men. but it is probably the most safe shark around and the most popular shark around as well. because they are known to swim in the shallow ocean here, muddy, cloudy water, even in the bay, and they are men to be in the delaware bay and fisherman catch them all the time. we just thought it was interesting in the summer of sharks with those eight, shark attacks on humans in north carolina, double the amount that they normally get in a full year in north caroline, that we would show you the pictures here on the new jersey coast. we have had shark sight goes, people running off the beach in avalon recently and other places but these sharks are not as a dangerous to man, but unless you are an expert and you can spot a shark in the water and know the breed and know it is not a danger, you will run off and grab your kids and run for your lives and yell shark if you saw one of these sharks. but usually you only see them on the line because they match the sand and they match the bottom of the merky atlantic
7:13 am
ocean. so, no fear, that these sharks, are around and you probably swim around you all the time. you never notice it. since they are not biting anybody, they don't cause any trouble. they do grow as long as 8 feet. they do eat the same things as humans, crabs and fish. that is why they're not bothering humans. they do not want to bite your legs and eat humans like a great white. coincidently everybody is talking about, the great white, of new jersey, they are saying in north carolina event is once in every hundred years event, alexa and mike. now they are talking about the the books written about this great white that menaced jersey coastline back in 1916. almost hundred year anniversary of that. great white killed four people in one, 12 day stretch, and nearly killed a fifth, it killed a 12 year-old and a 24 year-old in raritan bay, within one hour. and then the first person who was killed coincidently right where sue serio was in beach haven on friday and the people there were trying to save this guy on the beach and they were having a tug of war with this great white.
7:14 am
that was first of the four victims in that week. that is what they are comparing the the event in north carolina too. they are bringing out the great white in 19 back in 1916. we have great whites. we have fatal attacks. but nothing around here, this summer by the way, mike, the most place with the most shark attacks in all of america is on the east coast, in florida, 176 a attacks in the last 15 years but none fatal. we have had 15 fatal attacks in the america in the last 15 years. but none here in new jersey. thankfully. >> all right. what country has the most sharks near its big cities; in the world. >> reporter: australia. >> no. report report that would have been a second guess. >> thank you, steve. >> i watched shark week. >> 7:14. pope francis the world's
7:15 am
first latin american pope wraps up his pilgrimage to the region's most poor country. >> the pope left yesterday and while there he issued an apology to indigenous people for church crimes more than 1,000 years ago. his speech necessary ecuador, bolivia and paraquay hammered home respect for the poor and called for a turn away from capitalistic systems. of course, pontiff heads to philadelphia for the world meeting of families in late september. that woman was making the pope a dinner. >> really. >> will you be doing that when he comes to philadelphia. >> he can swing by the apartment, sure. >> get some potatoes. >> yes, pizza rolls. >> you knew, who was coming to dinner. >> who. >> president obama will be here tomorrow afternoon. he is delivering the keynote address during the naacp convention being held in center city this week. policy practices are among the issues activist are focusing on during the convention. naacp board of directors say president obama will bring a
7:16 am
message as to what is important from a white house standpoint. he will be talking tomorrow around 3:00. >> pardoned. let's go to that. >> i'd love to go. pennsylvania state senator, bob casey, will address the crowd at the convention. senator casey will discuss his strong start, act. what is that? well, it pushes for early education at the prek level, and he says investing in prek programs, can help people with their education, and also to prevent violence. and baltimore's state attorney general, marilyn mosby took the stage at the naacp convention. she gain national attention when she announced charges against officers involved in the arrest of freddie gray. most of you know mosby gave at dress at the naacp women empowerment forum. she talk about social and political establishment and overcoming hardships a lot of people said it was a great, great speech. >> well, it was inspirational and kind of fiery at times.
7:17 am
>> here comes sue serio at 6:17. >> yes, here comes a slow moving frontal system. it is a stationary front that will move to the north as a warm front. as a result of that you'll see more cloud, then sunshine, by the end of the day to day and eventually we will get some rain. but also, we're worth mentioning as we look at our surface map this morning, we have been watching this for the possibility of a tropical formation. it doesn't look like that will happen, even if it did it will be heading towards the north east away from the coast. either way it would be okay but it is just something to mention that we have been watching ab off shore disturbance. it doesn't really look like much. as we take a live look, at ultimate doppler radar, lot of rain to our south and west especially in virginia and a little part of the west virginia. thunderstorms starting to head toward the d.c. area but none of that is expect to make its way here, and not throughout the day-to-day. so that is, will dissipate and
7:18 am
we will get some rain but probably not until well after dark tonight. let's check that future cast. here are the rest of the day to day. it doesn't look like any rain but increase in cloud where we have seen a couple areas of green in the afternoon. that is in mostly cloud, now tomorrow, in the afternoon, that is when we do expect some rain, maybe even some pop up then are storm with that warm front finally, over our area, and, moving slowly, into the point where it stalls right over us and another front kind of joins it on wednesday. we have another chance of showers and then are storms starting at lunchtime on wednesday and lasting through the afternoon. we cannot rule out a pop up then are storm as well. that is tuesday and wednesday are your most iffy weather days of the week. temperatures 66 in allentown, reading, pottstown. seventy-four here in the city, and we've got into the 70's at the shore, so still expecting a little bit of the breeze, sea breeze, wind out of the north east, at the shore, here, if you are staying
7:19 am
there, maybe after, a really, excellent beach weekend. wind speed, not much, very calm out there, very tranquil monday morning. maybe just what we need to get our week started, some tranquility. eighty-nine on saturday. it was 90 on sunday. it is going to be 87, we think by the the even of the day to day with clouds, on the increase, throughout the afternoon, and unsettled with thunderstorms possible, on tuesday, and on wednesday, and, a six out of ten in your weather by the numbers. then we will head in the best weather days of the week and it looks like that is thursday and friday. especially on thursday when we could clear out humidity for a little while. 87 degrees on friday. weekend looks pretty g maybe some thunderstorms late in the day on sunday. so split is, we're taking care of your seven day forecast, also, trying to get you where you are going this morning with traffic. we will start off with route 422, eastbound, the off ramp to get on to 202, from 422, abe still in an accident there. we cannot really see it too well but trust me, it is still
7:20 am

cloudy muddy water on the atlantic ocean all the way down to brazil from massachusetts and they are in the bays, common in the delaware bay, chesapeake bay and back bays. fisherman are always catching them because they eat what we do, crabs and fish. no danger to humans and reason we are seeing them in picture, we will never see them swimming and surfing but probably constantly around you. reason you don't know they are there because they never bother any humans. they look mean like all sharks. since most of us are not an expert in various species and could not tell a great white from the sandbar shark, up close in the water, well, that is why everybody likes to look at these pictures and wonders should we run out if we see them. you will run after seeing this story, and neglect something about sandbar or brown sharks now, because they he just don't look real kind and friendly even on land and when their tiny juveniles like that. so we have had summer of shark attacks in north caroline, we
