Teen Girl Allegedly Raped on Two Street After Mummers Parade

Suspect caught.

The dark underbelly of Two Street after the Mummers Day Parade:

Police say [a 16-year-old] girl was walking in the area of 2nd and Tree Street when a young man pulled her behind a plastic covering of a scaffold and raped her. Officials say the girl had been participating in Mummers festivities on 2nd Street and may have been intoxicated. Residents on Tree Street next to the scaffolding say they heard screams and saw the suspect walking away when they came out to investigate.

The girl was sent to CHOP, while police caught the suspect very quickly.
