CHESTER, Pa. – Police say two more teen girls have been arrested in connection with the beating of a neighbor on her stoop in a struggling city outside Philadelphia, an assault captured on video and posted to Facebook.
Chester police Commissioner Joseph Bail says the final two suspects were apprehended Friday afternoon. He says one is a juvenile and the sixth is 19.
Four other teens, ages 16 and 17, are being held on $50,000 bail for the alleged attack on a 48-year-old woman authorities described as "mentally challenged." They've been charged as adults with aggravated assault, reckless endangerment, burglary and harassment.
Authorities say the victim was punched, kicked and hit with a shoe and chair. She sustained cuts and bruises but no broken bones and is being treated at a crisis unit.
