    Police have arrested a suspect in a midday assault on a blind man on a Philadelphia street last month, an attack that was caught on a surveillance camera.

    The camera on a Germantown street corner captured video of the attack on the 33-year-old man, as well as at least three people who witnessed it but didn't intervene.

    U.S. Marshals and state parole agents said they arrested 29-year-old Mustapha Guyton on Thursday.

    He faces assault and related charges.

    Police say the blind man was walking down the street around noontime Oct. 2. As he approached the corner of Wayne Avenue and Seymour Street, another man approached and struck him, knocking him to the ground.

    Detectives say the suspect proceeded to kick and stomp the victim, injuring his face and head as he lay helpless on the ground.
