(CBS PHILLY) — A group of teens violently attacked a woman at random in Chester and recorded the entire incident on tape.
During the vicious attack, which was later posted on Facebook, the teens could be heard screaming obscenities and even laughing. Police say on Thursday morning, an anonymous Chester resident alerted police of the taped incident that was apparently posted on Facebook.
The video starts as the group of teen girls are walking down Morton Avenue. Several seconds into the video, one of the girls casually walks up to the 48-year-old victim, who was sitting on her front step, and begin to punch and beat the victim.
The attack then leads inside the woman’s home, at which point several other teens join in on the attack.
In the video, it appears the teens are laughing throughout the entire ordeal, but instead of stopping, they complain of how much the woman’s home “stinks.”
Investigators say the attack lasted about 90 seconds. The video then shows the teens running out of the victim’s home.
Police say the victim did not notify authorities after the assault, but did seek medical treatment. She is being interviewed by investigators. Police say they have identified three of the six girls involved in the violent attack.
