He was known as the West Philadelphia Night Stalker.
But he's in jail today, thanks to the stalking of some alert cops.
Jerome Bussey, 20, of Mantua Avenue near 42nd Street, got his reputation for beating and robbing elderly women near 56th and Market streets between 4 and 7 a.m. last year.
Most of his victims were on their way to work when they were attacked from behind.
Last Dec. 1, Police Officers Billy Golphin and Ronald Green put an end to Bussey's early-morning crime spree. They caught him following the robbery and beating of a women in her 60s.
