Four teenage girls attacked a Temple student with a brick and attempted to rob her boyfriend on the 1600 block of Norris Street Friday, police say. The cops have now released a video of the four suspects.

NBC 10 reported a student was attacked by a group of 7 to 10 girls before the assault on the other two students.

Police say the group hopped on a SEPTA bus at 17th and Norris after the attack and attempted robbery. If you see them, police say to dial 911. To report a tip, call 215.686.8477.

    Does this story really surprise anyone? One more distraction from the war and, the economy. Now if an abortion occurs is that considered crime stopper?

      It’s more than a distraction when 1 in 4 tax dollars in Philly goes to fighting violent crime on top of us paying 700 a month for every kid they have, plus food stamps, plus housing allowances, plus heath care, plus birth control, plus, plus plus.

Even he agrees its black trash that keeps doing the same crap over and over again and the lame stream media continues to protect them. Vote democrap and you get the same crap over and over again.

  • RightsTough

    If this was a commercial I could photoshop in some white or asian friends but THE TRUTH is that these little scumbags are taking after “they Moms and they Uncles”. They call it a CYCLE for a reason! It never stops!

  • RightsTough

    In the coming days we will hear from their Mother’s about “What nice children” these 5 girls are. ExecuteTHEM before they have babies (or more babies). There is no hope for helping scum like these 5. Do they hold the value of life precious at all? NO! Are they cowards who travel in packs like animals. YES! Get rid of them now before the breed.

    So let me get this story straight? First, a female white student was attacked by 10 black girls – none older than 15 – in broad daylight – only 4 doors down from the police precinct station – punched and injured. When she went to the police station only 5 min. later, the black cop refused to take a report, and blew her off (she was so scared by the crowd of black thugs in the waiting room she couldn’t report any specifics). 10 minutes later these same sheboon migletts attack a white couple, try to steal their phone, and punch the guy out when he defends his girlfriend, who is than smashed with a brick? Did I get that right? And black people are DEFENDING these girls?
