SEPTA looking for track trespasser

Posted: March 19, 2014

ASUBWAY train smashed into a metal barrel and other objects that were deliberately laid across a stretch of SEPTA's Broad Street Line, authorities said.

SEPTA officials said the incident occurred at 4:25 a.m. Sunday on the southbound tracks between the North Philadelphia and Susquehanna/Dauphin stations.

No passengers were on board, and no SEPTA employees were injured.

Now SEPTA is asking the public to help identify the man who allegedly laid out the barrel and several bags of track clips, which had been stored away from the tracks.

Surveillance video shows the man entering the Susquehanna/Dauphin station platform from the tracks about 2:55 a.m., SEPTA said.

He also is shown on the recording walking up from the track area at the Cecil B. Moore and Girard stations. He's believed to be in his late 20s or early 30s, about 5-feet-9 and 180 pounds with a light complexion. The man also wore a dark blue or black letterman-style jacket with gray sleeves and a chest insignia.

Tipsters should call 215-580-8111.
