Police are searching for an overprotective father who assaulted a man for looking at his daughter.
The Upper Darby Police Department in suburban Philadelphia has released a picture of the man and his daughter who were in a Wawa convenience store Sunday when police said the man did not approve of how another male was looking at his child.
The suspect, dressed in a red polo shirt, punched the man in the face, police said. He then left the store.
The victim suffered serious injuries from the assault, police said.
Police did not release any additional information regarding the victim or suspect.
This guy's not an overprotective father ... That's just his excuse for thumping the guy.
"If somebody's looking at your daughter, why don't you confront him instead of punching him?" Upper Darby police Superintendent Michael Chitwood told Philly.com. "This guy's not an overprotective father ... That's just his excuse for thumping the guy."
