Police: 3 teens steal woman’s car at KOP Mall, slam into bus

WEST PHILADELPHIA (KYW Newsradio) — A woman was beaten up late Tuesday night at the King of Prussia Mall, police say, and her attackers took her car on short-lived joyride before slamming into a bus.

The woman had just ended work at the mall around 9:30 p.m. When she got to her car in a parking deck, police say three teens — two girls and one boy — walked up to her and asked to use her phone.

The boy then grabbed her in a chokehold, and the two girls started punching her.

The three teens stole her Toyota SUV, which Upper Merion and Pennsylvania State police saw on the Schuylkill Expressway near Gulph Mills.

Police were led in a brief chase before the SUV slammed into the back of a SEPTA bus around 10:30 p.m. at 37th and Hamilton streets.

The bus driver and six passengers were injured.

The three juveniles in the SUV were also injured, one of them critically. Two of the teens are 17. One of the girls is 14.

Charges are pending.
