In a related incident on November 17 last year, a disturbing video emerged showing teen girls brutally attacking high school students of Asian descent on a SEPTA train in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Police have confirmed the attack was "based on ethnicity."
The Asian students from Central High School were headed home after class around 3:30 pm on Wednesday, November 17, on the Broad Street Line subway. Footage from the scene saw a group of teen girls verbally abusing some of the Asian kids, hurling obscenities.
One of the girls even punched an Asian boy. When a female student of Asian descent attempted to intervene, she became the target of the assault. She was punched, slammed against the side of the locomotive, and thrown to the floor. The attackers mercilessly pummeled and stomped on her, while one of the suspects battered the victim with her shoe repeatedly. The victim was later rushed to the hospital for her injuries.
