Hammer Time in Philadelphia yesterday as a man was caught on a surveillance camera first driving behind another car onto a parking lot and when the first car was cornered, the driver of the second vehicle took out his, really, sledgehammer to go to work on the car of the other.
An incredible exchange continued as the man wearing shorts, working shoes and a fluorescent yellow T-shirt smashed through the window of the other car, clearly aiming to injure the other driver.

The surveillance video footage was recorded in the Port Richmond section of Philadelphia Tuesday where the incident took place in the parking lot of a business on Luzerne Street around 1:30 p.m.
A witness who wanted to remain anonymous explained that he heard the attacker yelling: “You’re cheating with my girlfriend.”

He also explained that the pickup truck driver tried to chase after the SUV with his vehicle after leaving the parking lot. This was however not captured on the surveillance video which was available.
