Philadelphia police are looking for eight people who investigators say were caught on video last month beating a woman on a street corner in Center City. On Tuesday, authorities released video of the attack and images, captured by security cameras in the area, of the people police are seeking to identify.
The assault happened around 7:15 p.m. on Feb. 23 at the intersection of 15th and Chestnut streets. According to police, several people ambushed a 33-year-old woman and knocked her to the ground. The suspects then punched and stomped the woman until she was unconscious, authorities said.
The woman was treated for injuries to her head, face and body at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital. Police did not provide any details about what may have prompted the attack.
On Tuesday, police released a video showing a portion of the assault and still images of the eight suspects wanted in the investigation. (The video is age-restricted and can only be watched on YouTube.)
