Upper Darby, Philadelphia – Be warned, the video after the jump is brutal. It shows Rhashad Carlton, 25, and his mother, Bonita, 45, involved in some type of altercation outside of a West Darby bar. While it does not show the events that lead up to the physical assault, it plainly shows Carlton stomping on the face of an unidentified yet clearly unconscious man. Over and over and over again. Ending the stomping with a flurry of punches. No telling how long this may have gone on had a cop not come from the police station across the street and threatened to tase both mother and son. The reason for the assault? “Mom was disrespected inside the bar,” said Michael J. Chitwood, superintendent of police. He said the victim did not know the attackers. Mother and son were charged with with aggravated assault and disorderly conduct, but attempted homicide charges are expected for Rashad Carlton. Bonita has been released on bail, her son is being held in the Delaware County prison. The victim was taken to the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania and was treated for blood on the brain, fractures to bones in his neck and face, and numerous cuts to his face.
Pretty rough, huh? Carlton has a past criminal history including aggravated assault. No one in the bar is giving up any info one what actually happened inside, the bartender, who sounds like she came right out of Stephen Seagal movie being questioned about a patron he wants to talk to, said that “nobody here saw nothing that night. I wasn’t here.” What does superintendent of police think about the establishment? Chitwood called the bar “a cesspool and a pit.” You can check here to see some video of Bonita offering an apology that it went as far as it did, but that the victim is not innocent in all of it.
