Man Attacked in Broad Daylight Tuesday

WTAE Pittsburgh, February 27, 2015


Eric Pastrick, 39, said he was in broad daylight when a teenager sucker punched him while the teen’s three friends stood by on Thompson Run Bridge, Route 837.

“Because the bridge was covered with snow and ice, I stood to one side to let them pass,” Pastrick said. “As I did so, one just up and punched me in the side of the head.”


Pastrick followed the teenagers, trying to get a picture of them. As he was following them, the group turned around and one of the attackers had used his cell phone to call friends. A group of four men started to attack Pastrick, kicking and punching him while he laid on the ground.

After Pastrick says they “were done with me” he was able to use his cell phone to call 911 and then crawl to a near by house. {snip}
