East Greenville Assault Victim Released From Hospital
Written by Bradley Schlegel, Staff Writer
2020-02-05

            A male teenager was assaulted Saturday afternoon in East Greenville. Four males beat him unconscious in the area of 4th and Railroad streets after approaching the victim and his friend, according to Mayor Keith Gerhart.

            A passerby driving in the area witnessed the attack and sounded the car horn that made the juvenile attackers run off, according to a message received from Gerhart early Tuesday morning, from information passed onto him from Police Chief Randy Morris. A statement from the mayor claims that despite previous reports, cell phone video of the attack does not exist.

            The boy was transported to Presbyterian Hospital in Philadelphia, where was listed as in stable condition, according to Gerhart. The victim was released from the hospital and sent home late Monday afternoon, according to Randy Morris, chief of the Borough of East Greenville Police Department.

            Reached Wednesday morning by phone, Morris said no arrests have been made. He declined to comment further on the incident, saying only that it remains under investigation.

            Officers from the Upper Perk Police Department assisted East Greenville at the scene, according to the police chief.

            Upper Perkiomen School District officials have not issued a statement on the incident, according to spokesperson Nicole Gum. She cited the ongoing criminal investigation and to respect the privacy of the victim as reasons for the decision in an email message received Tuesday afternoon.
