Flash Mob Of Over 100 Teenagers Assault Temple Students, Punch Police Horse
North Philadelphia, Pennsylvania – A massive group of teenagers attack and rob Temple University Students. One of the teenagers even punched a police horse in the face.
Robberies and assaults happened all around the Temple University campus Friday night after several hundred teenagers met up for a flash mob style get together. Local authorities report that the teenagers all met up to get into the Pearl Movie Theater but were denied access after too many people showed up.
The mob of teenagers, ranging from ages 14 and up, decided to then cause trouble elsewhere. Groups of the teenagers roamed the Temple University’s North Philadelphia campus robbing and beating up random students. It was such a chaotic incident that three separate law enforcement agencies had to respond. The Philadelphia Police Department, Temple University police, SEPTA police ended up detaining over 50 of the teenagers.
At least four of the teenagers were charged with aggravated assault, resisting arrest, robbery, criminal mischief, and other charges. One 16 year old teenager walked up to a mounted police officer who was trying to contain the scene and punched the officer’s horse twice in the face.
One group of Temple students, 2 males and 1 female, were attacked by a group of 30 teenagers. They were repeatedly kicked, punched, and had their belonging stolen. The father of the female victim posted this on Saturday
He states in his Facebook post
I find out that her and her 2 male friends where badly beaten by a group of 30-40 black teenagers on their way home from the Temple football game. This happened after they got off the subway at Broad and Cecil B Moore. These sick animals held her down and kicked and stomped on her repeatedly.
The father of the woman hospitalized stated that his daughter was attacked by 30-40 black teenagers, but no major news outlets have stated anything about the races involved. Honestly, this is how news should be reported, and we would like to see more of this. But why are the news agencies so quick to report race in other cases?
CBS News reported that one Temple student witnessed a group of around 200 juveniles and overheard some of them talking about the “knockout game”. Several other people were robbed and assaulted.
