In unrelated incidents, two men were assaulted in sports complex parking lots after the Nov. 11 Eagles game.
A 51-year-old and his 48-year-old wife had an altercation with about three men inside a parking lot on the 1300 block of Pattison Avenue at 7:45 p.m. following the Eagles’ 38-23 loss to the Cowboys, Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. One of the men from the group came up behind him and punched him in the face, resulting in his loss of consciousness. Despite his physical state, the men kicked him while he was down before fleeing in a 2004 silver Nissan pickup truck with a New Jersey tag, YMB65T.
A relative transported the victim to Jeanes Hospital where he was treated and received several stitches to close a laceration to his forehead, Tolliver said.
A detailed description of the perpetrators was not available at press time.
About an hour later a 27-year-old, his cousin, a friend and three unknown females were involved in a fight with three unknown men inside a parking lot on the 3400 block of South Darien Street, Tolliver said. The melee was broken up, but when the 27-year-old returned with the group to find a lost football jersey, one of the men from the earlier altercation punched the right side of his face, causing a cut to his upper lip and a shift in his upper teeth as he was sitting in a vehicle’s backseat on the passenger’s side. He told the driver to go and the victim and his crew left the area.
He did not realize the severity of his injury, but later was transported to Virtua Voorhees for 13 stitches to close the gash and emergency surgery on his upper teeth, Tolliver said.
His attacker was described as a white, 5-foot-10, 225 pounds and having dark hair and a muscular build.
