A SEPTA conductor has been charged with aggravated assault for allegedly attacking a passenger aboard a Regional Rail train at Suburban Station.
A male passenger was boarding an outbound train on the Wilmington/Newark Regional Rail line on Oct. 15 when conductor Gregory Kelly Sr., 50, allegedly assaulted him, said SEPTA spokeswoman Jerri Williams. SEPTA police responded and spoke to the passenger and multiple witnesses before taking Kelly off the job, Williams said.
The passenger, whose name was not released, told CBS3 in an interview that Kelly screamed at him, punched him repeatedly and tried to choke him. He said Kelly became enraged after he accidentally bumped Kelly as he was boarding the train.
