The video, which was recorded by another driver as others called 911, shows what investigators said happened around 10 a.m. Thursday just before police officers arrived to Old York Road and Rydal Road for an assault from a road rage incident that had started just up the road.
Two people got out of a pickup truck and approached the driver of a car in front of them. They then began punching and kicking the 23-year-old woman who is from Philadelphia.
“The female victim was violently assaulted by a male and a female outside and inside of her vehicle which caused her to become unconscious,” police said in their Facebook post. “She was transported to an area hospital for treatment.”
The attackers -- who police believe are from Philadelphia -- were gone before officers arrived. Police did find their Ford pickup, but without a license plate.
The victim of the attack was out of the hospital Friday morning after being treated, police said.
Investigators asked anyone who may have been driving by this attack Thursday morning or who saw some sort of traffic incident between the couple’s truck and woman’s car to call them at 610-635-4300 or email info@JenkintownPD.org.
