2 Philadelphia Teens Charged With Terrorizing Elderly Abington Woman

ABINGTON, Pa. (CBS) – Two Philadelphia teenagers are behind bars in Montgomery County on a half-million dollars cash bail each, facing numerous charges in connection with a home invasion last week in Abington Township in which they allegedly terrorized a 77-year-old woman.

Abington police say they got some pretty good leads from detectives in Philadelphia which led them to 19-year-old Jeffrey Lopergolo and 17-year-old Anibal Pastor, both of Northeast Philadelphia.   Pastor is being charged as an adult.

They are charged with burglary, theft, and assault in connection with the home invasion in the first block of McFadden Drive in Huntingdon Valley.

Abington deputy chief John Livingood says the pair broke into a home around dinnertime and confronted the homeowner.

“They assaulted her physically, sprayed her with pepper spray, struck her, threatened her, and held a pillow over her face so she could not see them,” Livingood says.

He says they made off with three handguns, cash, and jewelry, none of which have been recovered.

Livingood believes the two are being looked at for additional crimes in Philadelphia and the surrounding area.

    Beat the stuffing out of them and lock them up in prison for a while. The others there will take care of what ails these thugs. Prisoners have grandmothers, and they don’t care for those who mistreat old folks.

    If I could control just one thing in life, I’d get rid of all racism, bigotry, hatred, and prejudice all at the same time.

    What the…? Is MSNBC auditioning here in the comments for a replacement for Pat Buchanan or something?

  • CC

    wouldn’t it be great if they brought back the stockade? like in colonial days. that way the cowards would have to face the public they terrorized and get a chance to really feel as helpless and scared as that old lady. how’d they like to feel trapped like that and maced in the face repeatedly with no way to fight back.

    what we need to do is have resposible parents! half the parents out there do not know what their kids are doing! the kids run the streets with nothing to do. criminals come from all walks of life!! what we need to do is bring back the death penalty and use it! most of todays kids don’t respect their parents ,so there is no way they would have respect for anyone else! i like the boot camp fidea for these juvenile delinquencys teach them they cannot get away with the s–t anymore!!!! we have done this to our selves by allowing these things to happen with no punishment for juveniles and also the adult criminals!!!!

    @ crafty 1. I must admit, I got a good laugh at your last reply. “sheets and hoods”, “burning crosses”? Now that’s “too funny”. I happen to have friends in all sizes, shapes and colors and most of them feel the same way I do. Sure all races commit crimes but it’s obvious that the black community has the worst problem. I think the fact is, you’re the one in denial. As far as my screen name is concerned, I expressed my dissatisfaction with obama on another site and was immediately labeled “racist”, “hater”, etc. So I decided to keep “Hater”. Happy now?

  • Kay

    One kid is white and the other is mixed…But what does that have to do with anything? What does being from Philly and not the “BURBS” have to do with anything? I seen trash in the burbs just like I see in Philly. The kids that beat Eddie Polec to death were from Abington. It is the way you are raised and not the color of your skin or how much money you have in your pocket. Some people are pathetic.

    • I Love the "HUMAN" Race!!

      AMEN! AMEN!! and AMEN AGAIN!!!!

      • Guess Who

        Oh good grief! No one believes your libta rded propagan da anymore.

  • crafty 1

    Too funny. It’s really obvious who’s in denial, hence the name ‘hater’. LMAO

    • Hater

      Is that your best shot? Like I said, pathetic. Yes, it is obvious. Maybe I should go by Anonymous. That’s Mister Hater to you.

      • crafty 1

        That wasn’t a shot. That was a fact, ‘hater’. LMAO We don’t need to guess how you feel about people of color. Your name says it all. How often do you wash your sheet and hood? Do you only have one? Or do you have a whole closet full and rotate? I’ll bet you burn lots of crosses on lawns, don’t you? Ok. I’ve had my fun for the day. LMAO Too funny!!

  • Hater

    Most of you posters are pathetic. You refuse to acknowledge the 800 Lb. GOrilla in the room. I guess you will continue to ignore it until it saunters over and robs, rapes, beats and/or kills you, then maybe you will wake up if it’s not too late.

    • Guess Who

      They should google ‘The Color of Crime”, bu they don’t want to know the truth.

  • JustMe

    Well Anonymous, it was good while it lasted. Now someone is saying that neither of these boys are white. Here we go!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I suppose he is going to say they are both ‘of color’. LOL People. Just don’t want to face facts.

  • Jeff

    One looks to be Hispanic,name is also Hispanic sounding.The other one looks to be low class White trash Wigger.So at least one of them is White.What about the rest of the 90 percent of the criminals?What color are they usually?

  • William T. Shabazz

    OH MY GOODNESS…White folk do commit crimes occasionally….you would never know it from the typically biased news coverage…..Good work KYW telling the real story.

      There are those who would not believe it and would dispute it ’til the day they die, but, there are criminals in all cultures and races. And crime happens ‘everywhere’. It’s how the immediate society deals with the specific crimes and criminals that makes the difference. If we keep things the way they are and keep giving criminals ‘rights’, then they will continue to talk the judicial system into letting them go free to commit the crimes over and over again. I’m sticking with the pit bulls, angry and feisty old ladies with big pocketbooks full of golf balls, and joe said put them in the town square but I’d have people throw rotten eggs at them. Tomatoes are are just too easy on them.

  • caps

    Kids today should either have to go to college, have a full time job, or Boot camp !

    • Anonymous

      Now there’s something else I can agree with.

  • Joe

    These kids need to locked in cages. Put them in the town square so people can throw tomatoes and rotten eggs at them

  • Anonymous

    Make that 5 of us now. LOL

  • kate

    doesn’t matter what color they are– they both should be tied up and harassed by a couple of pit bulls.
    bottom line this country is and has been going to hell with violence.

      Oh here we go. Now, you see. Jeff just had to go and do it. LOL I knew there would be one sooner or later. I hate to be one to say I told you so, but, …. Hey, Jeff, what do you mean when you say ‘wigger’?

      • Gra pe A pe

        Wigger = white ni qqer.

    • Anonymous

      I totally agree with you also. And you are right on all counts. BUT, we all know that if these guys were, say, of the ‘different’ persuasion, this board would have been pounced with negative comments. But, so far, there are just the 4 of us.

      • Anonymous

        I like your comment about the guys being harassed by a couple of pit bulls. I also think they should be handcuffed and shackled and put in a room full of angry and feisty old ladies with big pocketbooks full of golf balls so they can beat them. I don’t know. I think I’d take my chances with the pit bulls. Angry, feisty old ladies are dangerous. And I’m not making light of things. They really are.

  • Anonymous

    I see the three of us are on the same page. That’s why my first comment was: “No comments?” LOL But, don’t worry. I have a feeling they’re be rearing their ugly words soon enough. Just wait and see. It never fails.

  • Dee

    Of course not–they are not the ones ur were hoping for–now think of all the excuses u can for these criminals from Philly…

      Hey, I’m on your side. I knew there wouldn’t be. That was my point. :0)
