The incident took place at about 9 p.m. Sunday in the 1400 block of South Penn Square in the Center City neighborhood when a group of ATV and dirt bike riders converged on the area around City Hall, according to Philadelphia police.
During a stop at a red light, the driver of an ATV and the driver of a red sedan appeared to become involved in a verbal altercation.
Video shows the suspect, who was stopped directly behind the ATV, hop off his motorcycle and jump onto the back of the woman’s car and kick in the back windshield.
When the victim confronted him, the suspect picked up a black handgun that fell from his waist and pointed it at the woman, police said.
As the suspect was walking back to his motorcycle, he was seen headbutting and shoving the victim.
