Pittsburgh, PA — Last week we reported on the juvenile who sucker punched a Kansas City Metro bus driver (he was eventually caught and charged with assault) and now we have a similar incident out of Pittsburgh, where a 15-year-old was arrested after surveillance cameras captured him sucker punching a teacher in a downtown alley.

Jim Addlespurger is a 50-year-old English teacher at Creating and Performing Arts School. Last Thursday, in the middle of the day, he was walking down an alley when he passed by six teens coming from the opposite direction. As the surveillance video below shows, one of the teens steps in Addlespurger’s path and then sucker punches him in the face.

No one was in the other’s way, and no words had been exchanged before the cowardly assault. “It appears to be a random act but this juvenile has a track record, already has, for example, a probation officer,” said Joanna Doven, spokeswoman for Mayor Luke Ravenstahl.

After eating the teen’s fist, Addlespurger can be seen toppling to the ground, striking his face and head on the curb while the teens nonchalantly walk away, laughing. The attack happened in front of a surveillance camera as well as a group of people sitting outside a coffee shop who rush over to help the man off the ground.

After the video was released to the public, the teen was identified and brought to police by his parents. On Tuesday, the unidentified teen was charged with simple assault and probation violation. Police are not releasing his name because he is a juvenile but it has been reported that he’s a student at Letsche Alternative Education Center. None of the other teens seen with him in the video will be charged.

As for Addlespurger, he was recovering from the attack at home and hasn’t made any detailed statements regarding the attack. “I think the video pretty much speaks for itself,” he said. Addlespurger also plays blues guitar for the Jimmy Adler Band. He posted on Facebook that he plans to play a concert Oct. 20 and that he appreciated all of the messages he has received.
