He didn’t see it coming.
A group of young men swarmed a Philly straphanger sitting on a northbound Walnut-Locust Station platform and beat the living daylights out of him, a disturbing video released Monday shows.
The attack went down last Thursday at 4:15 p.m.
In the police surveillance video, the pack is seen approaching the man, who was waiting for a SEPTA train.
Then, for no apparent reason, the young men unleashed a series of punishing blows and kept after the victim as he tried to escape.
The victim was hospitalized with minor injuries.
