Philadelphia Police Looking for Man Who Attacked Car, Passenger With Sledgehammer


The video shows a red pick-up truck following a vehicle into a parking lot on the 2700 block of East Luzerne Street.

Police are searching for the suspect and victims in what they believe was a case of road rage after surveillance video caught a man smashing the windows out of an SUV with a sledgehammer.

The entire incident was captured on surveillance video by a nearby business.

Both the victim and the offender in the incident are unknown to police. The man in the yellow shirt appears to strike the man in the blue shirt with the sledgehammer. The SUV stops a short distance away, and the passenger gets up in an attempt to get back into the vehicle. But we're certain that whatever the driver of the SUV did didn't warrant a sledgehammer attack that took out all his windows.

The SUV driver tried to leave the parking lot, but the passenger fell out of the vehicle, police said.

One of the passengers in the SUV falls out of the vehicle at one point in the attack.

Anyone with information is asked to call the police at 215-686-3243.
