Philadelphia Police said they are looking to talk to three suspects who are accused of assaulting multiple staff members at a North Philly Recreation Center, after staff asked the three women to leave the swimming pool yesterday. A 6 ABC Action News report said the incident happened at the Mcveigh Recreation Center on the 400 block of Ontario Avenue at around 4:25 p.m. on Thursday afternoon.
“Staff members repeatedly told the females that they were not allowed to keep swimming and that they would have to leave. The females continued to refuse orders to exit the facility while sitting at the end of the pool taunting and threatening the staff. Subsequently, the staff shut down the pool, and all other occupants of the pool exited the pool without issue”, the Philadelphia Police said in a statement released yesterday.
According to police, the females followed staff members into the rec center building. Two of the females reportedly began swinging at staff members when they attempted to block the females from entering the building. After a back and forth, staff members managed to prevent the females from entering the building.
The action did not stop once outside of the building. According to staff members, the females began vandalizing vehicles while outside of the building. Three cars were reportedly vandalized. While that was going on outside, two unknown males snuck into the building and stole on of the bags belonging to staff members. The bag was reportedly “recovered” at a later time.
The unidentified female suspects fled the premises on foot after the incident. Five people were treated by paramedics for minor injuries obtained during the scuffle. No word was given about if the swimming pool will be open to the public today.
