“A totally unprovoked attack” on a 42-year old Penn post-doctoral male student occurred near 3800 Sansom Street by an unknown male last Friday at approximately 9 a.m. according to Vice President for Public Safety Maureen Rush, who said that an “unstable” assailant lunged at the victim, stabbed him, and kept walking. The victim was released from HUP Friday night. The Penn Police are working with the Philadelphia Police, Drexel Police and SEPTA police. Anyone who sees a person displaying “alarming behavior” that is out of the norm should immediately call the Penn police at (215) 573-3333 or pick up one of the more than 200 emergency phones. Ms. Rush encouraged the use of main thoroughfares such as Walnut, Chestnut, Locust or Spruce streets.
