PHILADELPHIA (WTXF) -A man is in the hospital after a brutal attack in a SEPTA station. The man was punched so hard he was knocked out, according to authorities. Now, SEPTA police want to identify the teens in the video to talk to them about what happened on the train just before the alleged assault. It was a single punch that left the 60-year-old victim out cold on the platform at 15th and Market as his alleged attacker fled. “Our victim was knocked unconscious, suffered a broken jaw . Got stitches to his face and was left laying there on the platform,” said Chief Nestel. It started when the victim got on the train Monday afternoon and accidentally stepped on a young man’s shoe. Authorities say that led to an exchange of words with another young man. Several girls tried to intervene.
Well this is comforting. SEPTA: Where Accidentally Stepping On A Foot Can Eventually Break Your Face. Granted, the 60-year-old man should have probably walked away instead of trying to teach manners or hold down respect, but he still didn’t deserve that whamming. Seriously. Holy sucker fest. When someone gets to wind up like a major league pitcher before delivering a punch, you know the victim didn’t see it coming. Dude looked like Dennis Eckersley perfecting the slide step.
