Video Shows Philadephia Teens Beat Elderly Man To Death With Traffic Cone
Police have released a video of a group of 7 teenagers fatally attacking a 73-year-old Philadephia man with a traffic cone last month.
Disturbing footage of the incident, which occurred on June 14, shows a group of teenagers chasing James Lambert down the 2100 block of Cecil B. Moore Avenue.
The video shows Lambert trying to walk from the teens at around 3 am.
The group followed Lambert across the street before one of the male suspects attacked him from behind by striking him with a traffic cone.
The male teen knocked Lambert to the ground then one of the group’s females picked up the cone and hit him with it again.
Members of the group filmed the incident while they smiled and laughed throughout the attack. One of the females in the group did seem to be taken aback by the incident and held her hands over her mouth as if she was shocked.
Lambert tried to flee before he was struck again by the same female assailant.
The teenagers then left the scene.
Lambert was taken to the hospital but succumbed to his injuries the next day.
The police have offered a $20,000 reward for information on the individuals who have been described as “four Black males and three Black females who appear to be in their early to mid-teens.”
