PHILADELPHIA (Reuters) - A man described by authorities as a known sexual
predator was chased through the streets of South Philadelphia by an angry
crowd of Catholic high school girls, who kicked and punched him after he
was tackled by neighbors, police said on Friday.
Rudy Susanto, 25, who had exposed himself to teen-age girls on as many as
seven occasions outside St. Maria Goretti School, struck again on Thursday
just as students were being dismissed, police said.
But this time, a group of girls in school uniforms angrily confronted
Susanto with help from some neighbors, police said. When Susanto tried to
run, more than 20 girls chased him down the block. Two men from the
neighborhood caught him and the girls took their revenge.
"The girls came and started kicking him and punching him, so I wasn't
going to stop them," neighbor Robert Lemons told The Philadelphia Inquirer.
Susanto was later treated for injuries at a local hospital. Police said he
would be charged with 14 criminal counts including harassment, disorderly
conduct, open lewdness and corrupting the morals of a minor.
