    Woman's leg broken, others hurt in Spring Garden mob attack

    Philadelphia Daily News 215-854-4225

    A WOMAN'S leg was broken and several other people were injured Saturday night when a large group of teens accosted pedestrians in Spring Garden, police and witnesses said.

    Philadelphia police responded to two reports of pedestrians being assaulted by a large group of young people (careful not to mention race) along Broad Street about 9:30 p.m.

    One of those reports came from Emily Guendelsberger, 27, city editor for local arts and entertainment content for the Onion, the satirical newspaper and website. She was walking with seven friends on Green Street near Broad when they were accosted, she said. Guendelsberger, who remained hospitalized with a broken leg yesterday, declined to comment further.

    A friend who was with her at the time, Daily News staff writer Molly Eichel, said that they were walking down Green Street when a group of teens was walking down Broad. "We heard kids yell, 'Run, run,' " Eichel said. "Some kid just came out of nowhere and punched my friend Charlie in the face."
  2. Who would have thought that the Helter Skelter predicted by Charles Manson would come out true...!???


    Probably a little too early in the game for that...!:p

    Wait... The woman was a writer for the Onion? Is this some kind of bogus news story?
