Police in suburban Philadelphia say two teenagers who didn’t like a man’s attitude stomped him so severely that a sneaker imprint was left on his face. Upper Darby Police Superintendent Michael Chitwood says the 34-year-old victim has been hospitalized in a coma. Chitwood says the victim got into a verbal altercation with the teens, who claimed the man disrespected them. Chitwood says the suspects robbed and stomped him, leaving a sneaker imprint on his face. Nineteen-year-old Jeremiah Alexander of Upper Darby and a 16-year-old female were charged with assault and robbery in the attack on Friday. Chitwood told The Associated Press on Saturday that both suspects remain in custody. It’s not clear if either has a lawyer.
A double shooting in Wilmington has left a woman dead and her teenage son wounded. It happened around 9:15 p.m. Wednesday in the 1100 block of Davis Street. The woman killed has been identified as 42-year-old Dawn Dollard. It all began, police say, when Dollard’s 22-year-old son was coming home from the store. As he was entering the home, police say two masked men forced their way inside and announced a robbery.
Police say Dollard and another son, a 17-year-old, tried to run out the back door when one of the suspects opened fire. Dollard was struck in the back and killed. The 17-year-old was wounded in the shoulder. The 22-year-old was not hurt. There are no suspect descriptions at this time.
