Alicia Roberts, CBS Philly, June 17, 2022

A brutal and unprovoked attack was caught on camera. Three women were walking along an East Passyunk sidewalk minding their own business when a man comes alongside and begins to punch them. The brutal assault happened Wednesday night on the 1200 block of Morris Street and has left the neighborhood on edge.

The attacker didn’t take a thing from his victims, casually walking off when it was over. {snip}


Three women were walking down the 1200 block of Morris Street Wednesday night shortly before 11:30 p.m. when an unknown man came up from behind and, out of nowhere, struck one of them in the face with such force she fell to the ground. As her friend tries to step in, he punches her in the head and knocked her against a parked car, where he goes in for another hit. When the third woman tries to stop him, he pins her against a wall and starts swinging until she stumbles backward onto the sidewalk.

“They were screaming so loud,” a neighbor said. “They were screaming for their lives.”
