A Philadelphia motorcyclist who was arrested and jailed on numerous charges after he was captured on video jumping on and smashing the rear window of a woman’s car while two children were inside has had his bail amount increased, Fox 29 reported.
Court records obtained by the Associated Press show that 26-year-old Cody Heron was charged with aggravated and simple assault, reckless endangerment and terroristic threats in the attack that took place Sunday night.
Heron’s was initially set at $2.5 million. After appearing before a judge this Monday for aggravated assault and related charges in connection to the incident, the judge ruled that he will remain in custody on nearly every charge. The DA’s Office said Heron’s bail was increased to $1 million for each transcript, totaling 10 percent of $4 million.
Video of the assault was recorded by a tourist atop a double-decker sightseeing bus, and swept across the internet.
The suspect is seen getting off his motorcycle, jumping onto the back of the woman’s car and kicking in the back windshield.
The woman then gets of the car and confronts the suspect, who she said pointed a handgun in her face.
As the video continues, the suspect headbutts and shoves the woman as he retreats back to his bike.
Police say tips poured in identifying Heron, who was taken into custody at his home days later.
