A 27-year-old man was charged Thursday with robbing a Wawa customer in the restroom of the Atlantic County store.

Officers responded to the Pleasantville location around 11:40 a.m. to the West Delilah Road convenience store, local authorities told NJ.com.

While there, a man told officers he'd been robbed of several hundred dollars cash while in the bathroom, police said.
