Chivalry is dead and so is she
Five "brave" men attacking a 21 year old pregnant woman outside traffic court.
Find the rest of them and send them all away for as long as possible. After giving them due process of course.
The victim, who was the mother to a three-year-old girl, and her current boyfriend were leaving the courthouse at 800 Spring Garden St. when they had some sort of altercation with an ex-boyfriend and a group of men just before 2 p.m., sources said.
Witnesses said that about five men attacked the woman outside the courthouse.
The ex, who is also from West Philly, allegedly struck her in the head and she fell to the ground possibly hitting her head against the pavement, police said.
She was pronounced dead at 3:10 p.m. at Hahnemann Hospital after the altercation.
A 29-year-old man believed to be the ex was arrested, said sources.
Police were looking for other possible attackers, sources said.
The victim was taking classes at Cheyney University and worked as a pharmacy technician at a West Philly Rite Aid, family members said.
