Pa. police: Girls beat woman, post video online
CHESTER, Pa. (AP) — Police in suburban Philadelphia say several teenage girls beat a 48-year-old woman in her home and posted video of the unprovoked assault on Facebook.
The Delaware County Daily Times first obtained the video today from Chester police.
It shows a group of girls walking along before suddenly deciding to attack a woman sitting on her stoop.
The girls then follow the victim into her home as she tries to escape. They take turns punching her before fleeing the scene.
Police detective James Nolan tells The Associated Press that three suspects are in custody, and about three more are being sought in the attack earlier this week.
He says a community member alerted police to the video Thursday. Nolan says the victim was treated and released.
