Did a dad near Philadelphia go too far?
Police near Philadelphia are looking for a father who sucker punched a man at a Wawa convenience store because the man was allegedly eyeing his teen daughter.
“The man ordering the sandwich said he wasn’t looking at the guys daughter. And the guy sucker punched him, knocking him to the ground,” Upper Darby Superintendent Michael Chitwood told Fox 29 in Philadelphia.
The victim, a 47-year-old man, went to hospital for a possible concussion.
The father left the store and could be charged with assault and making terrorist threats–when they find him.
“It’s excessive, give me a break if somebody is looking at somebody else it’s not enough to get sucker punched and hospitalized,” Chitwood said. “I could see if there was an assault or threats, but just to be looking, and then to leave the store in such a big hurry they didn’t identify themselves they just ran out of the store.”
Police have a picture of the dad. He was captured on surveillance tape.
“I think they’re both in the wrong. Street harassment is a serious thing and some guys can be perverted. I don’t know what was said, but violence is never acceptable either,” said one customer
