An unidentified father apparently pυnched another man for looking at his daughter too hard, according to police in Pennsylvania.
The Upper Darby Police Department says the father went too far when he spotted another man staring at his teenaged daughter.
According to CBS Philly, the incident took place at Wawa in Upper Darby.
“If somebody’s looking at your daughter why don’t you confront him instead of pυnching him?” said Upper Darby police Superintendent Michael Chitwood. “This guy’s not an overprotective father … That’s just his excuse for thumping the guy.”
Here’s the posting from the police department’s Facebook page:
UDPD needs help identifying these two in connection with an assault. Apparently the male did not approve of another man looking at his daughter and struck him in the face, causing serious injury. Anyone who can ID either one or both of the subjects in this photo please message me or call 610-734-7693. All tips can be anonymous if you choose. If you could share this post that would also be helpful. Thanks again!
Chitwood said that although the man looked at the teen, he didn’t cross a line that should’ve ended in violence.
“There is no indication that the victim said anything to this young lady or touched this young lady,” Chitwood said. “The accusation was he was looking at her.”
The victim in this case reportedly suffered minor injuries.
“The victim suffered a laceration to his head,” Chitwood says, “and a possible concussion.”
The father got away in a four door Ford.
What do you think of this father’s actions? He may’ve had reason to get upset, but did he go too far when he put his hands on the man in question? What should be the punishment?
