Gang engenders grief


A group of male juvenile offenders attacked a fellow teen in Lower Moyamensing.

At 12:08 a.m. June 15, the complainant was walking on the 1100 block of Snyder Avenue, having exited the Broad Street Subway stop at Broad Street and Snyder Avenue. Observing the aforementioned figures walking toward him, he walked into the street to avoid any contact, Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said, but they followed, with one punching him in the face, resulting in the breaking of his eyeglasses and the falling of his cell phone to the ground.

They combined to deliver several more punches to his face and demanded his money. They received $220, took the phone, and fled southbound on 12th Street toward Jackson Street. The victim described them all as black teens, with one wearing a red T-shirt.
