Police: Man Assaulted with Glass at Paddy Whacks on South Street

Cops today released surveillance footage of an alleged assault at Paddy Whacks Pub earlier this year.

The Philadelphia police are looking for a man who they say assaulted another patron of Paddy Whacks Pub on South Street.

Police say the assault took place on February 28th, but police just released surveillance footage from the bar this afternoon. The video shows two men talking, when the suspect slams a glass into the victim’s head. He then continues punching the victim until someone, identified by police as a bar employee, breaks up the fight. (It’s broken up pretty quickly, actually!)
