Cops Seek Teens Who Hit Temple Student with Brick

Emily Babay, Philly, March 25, 2014

Police are looking for the group of teenage girls who hit a Temple University student in the face with a brick, and are warning students to be on alert near the school’s North Philadelphia campus.

In a message sent to students and staff Monday night, the university said its campus safety department was aware of “multiple off-campus assaults on Temple students” in the area of North 17th Street just west of the campus.

Also Monday night, Philadelphia police released surveillance images, video and suspect descriptions from the Friday evening attack that left a student with dislocated teeth and other injuries to her face.


All four suspects are described as black girls who were about 16 or 17 years old. {snip}

A 20-year-old student told NBC Philadelphia that she was also attacked by a group of girls on Friday night.

And Temple said a pair of juvenile girls tried to snatch a student’s purse on Monday evening.
