Juvenile Assaulted at Traffic Light

Tabs

Case

On October 2, 2021, at approximately 5:26 PM, an assault reportedly took place in the 100 block of South Union Street. The victim, a 17 year old juvenile male, was sitting in his vehicle stopped at the traffic light. The victim reported that the light was green; however, an unknown male was standing in the crosswalk talking to the vehicle in front of the victim's vehicle. It was reported that another vehicle in traffic honked it's horn. The male approached the victim, cursed at him and threatened him, then slapped him and punched him in the face before fleeing the scene. 

The suspect was reported to be wearing a teal green "Vissla" surfing company t shirt and khaki pants. The suspect was accompanied by a female who also fled the scene.  The attached pictures are of possible examples of the shirt worn by the suspect, not the actual suspect in the incident.

The timing of this incident occurred near the conclusion of a local event. Due to this, there were a large number of pedestrians in the area so we believe that there may be other witnesses to this incident.  

Anyone with information or who may have witnessed the incident is asked to contact Officer Cole Burkhart at cburkhart@kennettsquarepolice.org or 610-444-0501.
