On June 11th at 4 AM five assailants were captured on security camera assaulting restaurant patrons outside Geno’s Steaks.
The jihadis beat the restaurant patrons screaming, “Don’t mess with us, we belong to ISIS!”
The Philadelphia police released this report:
On June 11, 2016 at approximately 4:15 am, five (05) unknown males were captured on surveillance video outside 1219 South 9th Street assaulting the victims. After the assault the suspects fled in two (02) vehicles, a dark colored pickup truck and a SUV and fled in an unknown direction. Both vehicles had New Jersey license plates. Victim #1 was struck in the face & body causing a cut to his face, victim #2 was struck in the face & body causing a cut to his face and a bloody nose, and victim #3 was punched in the face but injuries were reported by this victim.
The attack took place less than 24 hours before the deadly Orlando Islamist attack.
The police released video of the suspects.
The Philadelphia Inquirer reported:
The men, all caught on surveillance video, fled in two cars – a dark colored pickup truck and an SUV – both with New Jersey license plates.
Police are also looking for one woman described as a getaway driver.
Police did not provide information about the assault, but said the video of it was “too graphic” to release.
Patrick Kane, a victim of the attack, provided this account.
He said he and his wife, Brooke Kane, had spent the night at a friend’s wedding and then at an after hours club with another couple, when they all decided to grab a bite to eat at Geno’s.
They were just finishing up their cheese steaks when Brooke Kane’s girlfriend asked another group of patrons if she could bum a cigarette, Patrick Kane said.
“That is when the guys just lost their minds,” said Patrick Kane, 31 and a maintenance supervisor at an apartment building.
In seconds one man stood up, put his hand over the face of the woman and pushed her across the sidewalk, said Patrick Kane.
“‘Don’t mess with us, we belong to ISIS,’” Kane said the man shouted at them.
Brooke Kane, a daycare teacher, stepped in to help her friend. The ISIS comment was not a joke she told them before she too was struck, Patrick Kane said.
At that point he and the other man stepped in to try and help the girls with the intention of leaving.
“What went from putting hands on two girls became five guys attacking us,” said Kane.
Patrick Kane said one man punched him in the nose, which started bleeding. He was then punched in the back of the head by another man and hit twice in the eye. He remembers Brooke screaming at bystanders for help and to call police.
