15 Heinous Mass Transit Attacks That Occurred in 2012

13. Philadelphia Metro Rider Stalked and Sexually Assaulted

City: Philadelphia
When: 5/26/2012

Looks like there isn't much brotherly love on Philadelphia rapid transit. On May 26, a woman was attacked and sexually assaulted after exiting a train on the city's SEPTA Broad Street line around 9 p.m. The 21-year-old victim had earlier noticed a man clad in sunglasses and a blue apron when she boarded and also observed him transfer onto another line along with her. The woman told police the man approached her as she exited the train, held a knife to her stomach, and forced her into the nearby parking lot where he then sexually assaulted her.
