4:30 am
would the man was following the septa bus, and when it stopped at a typical stop, the man ran up to the bus trying to get through to the women. while doors were shut, woman was sitting on the busy went up and smacked window so hard with an opened palm he smashed and shattered that big septa side passenger window. the bus driver seeing a problem not knowing what is going on, not knowing if these two people necessity each other, takes off and starts going down the boulevard. this guy, then they learn is in a pontiac grant preor grand am, with a paper tag, a temporary tag from the state of the delaware. that guy, then drives in front of the bus, cuts it off, forced the bus to stop on the boulevard, and then he gets out of the car, comes back over to the bus, bus driver does not let him in but woman demand to be let off the bus for some reason despite how violent that guy was acting. the as bus driver's door is opened, the guy gets up into
4:31 am
the doorway where woman was trying to get off the bus and start punching her in the face and head. he pulls her off the bus, drags her down to his car, throws her in the back of this pontiac grand am and takes off. they all have the same memory of the same tag, the police ran the tag. they get nothing. nothing comes up because it is a temporary paper tag that maybe has been altered. the car took off. that is what they are looking for right now. they think come particular because they think this guy knew this woman. so he had in weapons, just his hand which can be pretty lethal weapons when beating up a young woman. no one else on the bus was hurt. the busies over at the depot at pratt and bridge in frankford that big septa area over there where they shattered the window. reason i mention that had is there are several surveillance cameras on septa abuses which we learned from watching this show every day and there happened to be a camera aimed at that window where he is smashing it and woman is
4:32 am
seated. police are over there looking at surveillance to get a good picture of this guy to put it out to the public and maybe identify him that way to figure out where he is with this car that took off south on the boulevard. so that is what they have here. it happened at 2:00 in the morning. the least busiest time in the day you would think but crazy time of the day when you are a police officer in this town where bad things happen and this is the latest. chris and lauren, i hope i summed it up. >> boy would i like to see that video after investigators get a chance to look at it, and we can figure out what happened. other developing story we will get to, in a minute but first dave kinchen you have some weather on that raid are a a. >> not dave kinchen, dave warren. >> but we will get to the other story with septa and the platform, next, but first lets go to dave warren. >> thank you very much, mr. murphy. we have some rain, talking about, moving through. this it is a lot of green,
4:33 am
some not reaching the ground. we have reports of the light rain showers. that line will hold together. you will see a brief period of the light rain shower between now and about 6:00 o'clock this morning. it is moving, it is moving south, that will be followed by a cooler breeze. right now right along i80 there moving in carbon, monroe county, pushing south, a light green color not really reaching the ground, maybe a light shower here, from cape may county, up the garden state parkway through atlantic city. light breeze at 66 degrees. that is the high temperature today, maybe dropping and then sunshine, warming things up, big tug of war with the cooler breeze and sunshine, once you get to tonight we will lose that sunshine cold night tonight, today though just enjoy the mild temperature. in more record, just passing shower and a comfortable day with temperatures in the 60's. sixty-two in millville. sixty's to the south here. here is few you tour weather computer showing that line at 6:00 o'clock. then it moves out. the getting sunshine here. sun returns with the cool breeze this this afternoon.
4:34 am
temperatures will be right around where they are right now. mid 50's once that rain clears out. we're in the clear. we are seeing sunshine and a few clouds. now for all of the latest traffic issues this morning lets get over to bob kelly, good morning. >> good morning. more septa a issues at the moment both septa and amtrak i just heard from septa here's the latest they are officially saying that starting the morning service will be suspended, on the paoli thorndale regional rail line. here is some options before we toss over to dave at 30th street station. if you typically use the paoli line and you have no other means of transportation as in a car, then the norristown high speed line will get to you 69th street. from there you can take the market frankford line into downtown. everyone had to do the reverse on the way home last night, with the power outage. there are other options on septa a's web site, again, all of the train station as long the line depending upon which station with you typically board the train and where you
4:35 am
are going, there could be alternate bus options, but basically, throwing the whole deck of card in the air for the morning rush hour. this is an amtrak signal problem, amtrak owns the tracks, they own the line so septa is landlord i guess you can say. amtrak is still making repairs to that stretch of the track. it effects the amtrak trains heading west, out to harrisburg as well, expect delays on amtrak this morning, and expect a rough go for regional rail riders. lets go to dave, live at 30th street station, dave, what can you tell us. >> reporter: bob, it is not just impacting, of course, septa paoli thorndale line there but we are looking at 30th street station saying amtrak keystone line will be impacted with delays as well, and as of earlier, amtrak was talking about delays up to an hour for that line. crews have been working
4:36 am
overnight on this problem. we want to show you everything that happened last night. the septa buses were called into get people in center city, who just left work to get them home to the suburbs during last night's evening rush, the buses traveled outbound from 30th street station where we are toward thorndale. as you mentioned bob, amtrak power problems forced suspension of the the paoli thorndale line around 5:30 yesterday evening and that was probably the worst time. it was about the tail end of rush hour there and amtrak owns the track that septa lines, that septa line runs on, and, as crews continued to work, the big question is when will all of this be in place. people will to have mention, consider other options in addition to other options we mentioned bob, maybe uber, in fact, that gives you, distance without paying a whole lot or car pooling, but certainly, a big problem for a lot of commuters this morning, back to you. we have learned that
4:37 am

4:44 am
for morning rush hour. >> paoli thorndale line is still suspended. amtrak crews were still working. there were two situations last evening that involved their wire, their overhead wire, one in the ardmore station area and one in the area near the yard where we store most of our trains for the paoli thorndale line and when they got in there last night, and started working on it, it has taken longer then what was anticipated. services on the line was suspended for the time being. we're offering passengers need an alternative means the norristown high speed line would be an alternative into 69th street and then transfer to the market frankford line. >> just to be clear last night you offered shuttle bus services for folks home. there is no shuttle bus services this morning is that correct. >> that is correct, as far as this morning, and last evening, those buses were made
4:45 am
available after the evening rush hour, because we had buses outside on the line. it happened during rush hour. it is the flower show. we had a lot of heavy travel, and then every time something like this happens, it is in the good but especially touring a rush hour. we had people, steering people in the direction of the norristown high speed line because it toss stop at villanova a, radnor and bryn mawr and then when we were able to after we got buses to take people who were on trains at station that is weren't able to move, we got them off of those trains and able to bring those buses and some other buses to 30th street to get people going to the flower show, people were normal evening commuters to get them back out to fern dale. >> what i think will happen this morning if you do have an option to drive, if it was me i'm driving this morning. if i don't have have a car your option would be to get to
4:46 am
what villanova, radnor or -- >> bryn mawr. >> soville know of, radnor, bryn mawr and take norristown high speed line, to 69th street. >> yes. >> and from the 69th street terminal and market frankford line will get you into center city. >> right. >> heather, thanks very much. heather redfern from septa if anything changes here for morning rush hour, we will bring it to you first but that is very latest from the paoli thorndale line and as heather mentioned this is as a result of amtrak power problems and amtrak's keystone line using same set of tracks as paoli thorndale line n1 from amtrak has responded to any of their calls even their twitter page still has a date of march 1st, last time they were updated. so if you use amtrak and head west this morning, again you are on your own, keystone line most likely at least a delay if in the worse service
