Women With Mace, Bats Attack School Bus in Bizarre Northeast Philly Road Rage Incident
[UPDATE] NBC10 reports that police have questioned two women they’re calling persons of interest in Thursday’s bizarre attack. The women showed up to claim the vehicle police say was used in the incident.
The SUV, despite being a Suburban — not a Tahoe as first reported by police — is the one used in Thursday afternoon’s “bizarre” attack, according to police
Two women showed up at the impound lot Friday afternoon to claim the SUV. Police consider the women persons of interest and took them into custody for questioning.
[ORIGINAL] A student was injured on Thursday when police say a group of women attacked a bus with baseball bats and mace on Roosevelt Boulevard in Northeast Philadelphia.
The incident happened at 3 p.m. near the Boulevard and Levick Street. Teenagers, 14 and 15 years old, were yelling at an SUV driving next to it on the Boulevard. The women sped up, pulled in front of the bus and blocked its path. Two women then got out of the bus and began hitting it with baseball bats. They also sprayed mace on the front of the bus.
Before leaving in their SUV and fleeing down Horrocks Street, cops say, the women broke the window behind the bus driver. A student hurt his wrists in the attack, but he is expected to be okay.
“For someone to get out of a vehicle and use a baseball bat and break a window of a yellow school bus knowing that it’s full of students – that’s pretty bizarre,” Philadelphia Chief Inspector Scott Small told NBC 10.
The women were driving a green Chevrolet Tahoe. NBC 10 reports the students were from outside Philadelphia.
