4:07 am
someone is considered trespassing, it is to protect people, and we don't know if someone is down there unlawfully, we don't know what they're doing, what their intent is, it is nothing but safety hazards, so when someone is on the tracks, yes, we responds, investigate and find out what you were doing there, and chances are get issued a summons or citation, which is very minor, not talking miss de meade err, something relatively minor. so for this to have happened, police officer, for fairly minor offense and unprovoked. >> reporter: sergeant is doing okay. this guy is lucky the sergeant didn't do anything back to get back to this guy all i can say. she was helped by other people who came up to her because she laid down on her back for awhile. just stunned, something like that would happen. that's the last thing you would expect when you're trying to just stop somebody. and she clearly saw he didn't have any weapon. but this guy turned a little
4:08 am
ticket into an assault on an officer. i'm sure when a judge sees this video, when this guys goes to court, the judge is not going to look at him too kindly. the officer we talked to, you will hear him later throughout the show, they think this guy, he's going do this, he must be hiding some previous crime that he's wanted for. so, and finds out his backgrounds, because nobody just does this if they don't have anything hanging over their heads. that's what they are thinking here. so he could be potentially more dangerous, that's why they want to identify him and then catch him, guys. >> all right, absolutely, they want to get him off the street. thank you, steve. 4:08. warning from police in pemberton township. someone tried to abduct a child last night. this is in the presidential lakes area. they think the person who tried to lure the child was driving a brown ford ranger pick up. if pemberton police want to hear from you. >> cherry hill police are askingorning in finding missing woman right there.

4:17 am
week when our high was 96 degrees, one week ago. today will probably be where we were yesterday with a high of 79. how about that? a lot more comfortable, 84 degrees tomorrow, with the late day thunderstorm, friday, looks like showery and stormy kind of day, with a high of 85, but as we said, maybe a left over shower in the morning, on saturday, but clearing out for the rest of the day, and sunday, definitely a fabulous weekends. weather day with a high of 83 degrees, and we start to warm up again by tuesday of next week into the upper 80s, now, if you forgot some of the numbers specially today's, bob kelly, you can tune into 101.1 more p.m. m. just put it on your favorite list. >> i do, i have it on my pre-set there, boom, good to go. good morning, everybody, 4:17. look like pre-set for the bridges in the morning. we've had a ton of openings the past couple of weeks around this time on the talcony palmyra. today won't disappoint, in the middle of a bridge opening here. traffic stopped on both sides

4:35 am
also be heating up. because federal investigators say that today they will be having a press conference on issues related to both lehigh county, as well as berks county. karen and thomas? >> all right, jenny, lot more on this one, thank you. 4:35, septa police are searching for a person who attacked an officer. this is video from the sergeant's body cam. they want to get that person you just saw like over top of her to get him off the streets and make arrest. right out to steve keeley at septa headquarters with what we know right now. steve? >> reporter: you know, it is heart to watch that video, go on live tv and not curse. how about that? here at headquarters, probably some cursing going on, because it seems like police, both septa and philly place, are the modern day rodney danger fields lately, getting zero respect, and mr. tough guy, as were run this video, you see on the officer's body camera, comes running up the steps from down on the tracks, which is why the public and the police were talking about this, maybe to save these
4:36 am
people's lives, and get them off the angora tracks, before they get hit or killed by a train. this is monday at 7:00 p.m. and so with the momentum of him running up the steps, and then running on to the platform, running right at her, sergeant lynn per own, you see, put up her right hands, says stop, and he doesn't, and gives her a football cornerback-type at the line shove. you see at a wide receiver, but she is not as strong and big as a football player. she goes down hard on her back, on the concrete, and if he does this, to a uniform police officer, and he hit women, what else is he going to do? >> it is very important for that. at this point we've not identified him. so when someone does something of this nature for offense that's very minor, typically there may be something more going on that we don't know. we don't know possible warts exist, don't know the possibility of another crime that may have been submitted by the same person, if that were the case, so we definitely want to get this
4:37 am
person identified, gel them off the streets, answer for justice for what they did. >> a person can be anybody, you know, it is terrible. >> terrible when they're out here trying to protect the citizens, and something like that happens. >> it sound pretty messed up. i mean, i don't think he did the right thing obviously. >> all right, so here is another look, at guy who disrespects uniform police officers, and hits women. a double incentive to call in this bleep's id, if you're double discussed as i'm sure most of the viewers r guys? >> all right, steve, yes. easy to be discussed by that kind of action, 4:37. another roadblock for the mariner east pipeline. from their stant pounds, for the people that live in the community going through, ey happy. administrative judge has temporarily halted work on this project because the judge want the pennsylvania public utility commission, to hear and rule on whether sunoco violated a settlementn township from two years ago. the township says they just

4:46 am
weekends, i was behind somebody like that, and i thought to myself: why, the camper is like three times the size of the truck that is pulling it, so that's a little craze think for the folks that are driving along the roadway, probably lost control, and that's tough when you're pulling big camper like that behind you. live look here at the freeway, northbound coming in toward philadelphia. starting to seat beginning of a morning rush hour, picking up the cones over there in bellmawr, still working though on the vine street expressway. this is a live look downtown, still closed between broad street and the schuylkill. if you are coming into town, off 95, you can use vine st. local. and that will put you onto, say, the kelly drive, if you are coming off the schuylkill. you can use 30th street. and market street will get new center city. they've been working all night long here on the schuylkill expressway, the cones are still down, because the asphalt is not dry yet. again they're repaving the stretch of the schuylkill. so right here, between conshohocken, all the way into belmont avenue, as you get to
