UPPER DARBY, Pa. (AP) — Authorities in suburban Philadelphia say a woman was raped by a stranger on a commuter train in the presence of other riders who a police official says “should have done something.”
Upper Darby police were called to the 69th Street terminal late Wednesday after the assault. A police official says a transit employee in the vicinity of a passing train reported that “something wasn’t right” with a woman who was aboard.
Police say the entire episode was captured on surveillance video that showed other people on the train at the time.
A 35-year-old man was arrested and has been charged.
