As seen in the video, a man walked up to the security guard and they exchanged a few words, but it’s difficult to make out exactly what was being said. Then the man began to reach around the guard’s chest or face, at which point the guard got into a fighting stance and threw a punch to the man’s head. After the man went down, the guard punched him several more times before leaving the scene.
The man was later taken to Temple University Hospital to be treated for his non-fatal injuries, according to SEPTA spokesperson Andrew Busch.
Busch added that the most reasonable explanation for why the altercation occurred was the man evading bus fare, but the footage does not make clear what was actually happening.
