PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Police in Philadelphia say a lawyer is facing charges for throwing coffee on another woman outside a Starbucks, then pulling her hair, punching her and pushing her to the ground in a beating stopped by a pedestrian.
Police announced Friday that 47-year-old Yvonne Montgomery turned herself in on May 24, about a month after the attack outside the Center City coffee shop.
Montgomery, of suburban Wyncote, faces misdemeanor charges including terroristic threats and simple assault.
Police released surveillance video of the April 25 beating to track down the woman. The cause of the altercation wasn’t provided.
A message seeking comment from Montgomery wasn’t immediately returned Friday.
