AP journalist punched while walking with police commissioner
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — An Associated Press photographer on assignment has been attacked by a passerby while the journalist crossed the street with Philadelphia Police Commissioner Danielle Outlaw and Mayor Jim Kenney. The photographer was taking photos Thursday of Outlaw and Kenney in the Tioga-Nicetown neighborhood of North Philadelphia while the two city officials spent time with community members. As Kenney, Outlaw and about a dozen more police officers and media were crossing Broad Street, a man sucker-punched the photographer in his face. It’s unclear what prompted the attack. Police arrested the man. The photographer was taken to the hospital and is expected to be OK.
