FOX 29 Reporter Attacked While On-Scene of Animal Hoarding Story

Chris O'Connell attacked at Ninth and Shunk

Last night police and the SPCA were at a house at Ninth and Shunk Streets to deal with a bizarre case of animal hoarding that stemmed from a naked guy being locked out on his porch. After police responded and saw a dead iguana, they were able to obtain a warrant and search the home. O’Connell was on public property reporting on the story when the son of the homeowner knocked out the light on O’Connell’s camera and went after the reporter. A bystander and an SPCA investigator were right there to intervene. What is going on in Philly lately? It’s got to be the heat, right? [FOX 29]
