The gruesome incident took place at 2:38 a.m. on Friday, June 24, on the 2100 block of Cecil B. Moore Avenue in North Philadelphia. Police say 73-year-old James Lambert was attacked by four males and three females. The suspects who brutally beat Lambert with a traffic cone are believed to be in their early to mid-teens. Action News has learned two of the suspects are minors and are siblings.
