Caught on Camera: Drexel Hill Man Punched in the Face at Trolley Stop

Dave Kinchen, My Fox Philly, June 15, 2014

A man sitting at a trolley stop in Drexel Hill is punched in the face, and it’s all caught on camera.


He says he was just minding his own business at the Burmont and Morgan trolley stop last week when about six teens came up to him.

“It’s a feeling to me that I know it wasn’t personal. I know, I don’t do anything to anybody,” he said.

The video shows the attacker standing around for several seconds before striking the man in the face.

“It could have been worse because they did hit me with glasses on, and they could have sent my glasses right into my eyes,” said the victim. “I take anxiety medicine and it was quite a setback.”

Upper Darby Police are calling the incident yet another in the popular ‘Knockout Game’ where people are punched out of the blue while someone else records it.

Police also believe one of the suspects posted the video on Facebook for the world to see.

“Extremely disappointing about how the world’s changed since I’ve known it,” the victim said.
