Mom, 1; Street Punx, 0

On Wednesday afternoon, two teenagers viciously attacked a 65-year-old man in Olney. The victim suffered severe head injuries that required his jaw to be wired shut. The surveillance video, which captured the senseless act in its entirety, was later released to the public in an effort to apprehend the suspects.

Fortunately for the victim, and Philadelphia’s collective faith in the benevolence of humanity, one of the suspects’ Mom recognized her son in the footage and, presumably, dragged him by the ear to the local authorities.

According to the video below, the teens, whose names haven’t be released, will be charged with aggravated assault

*Update: The video depicting the incident has since been removed from YouTube.
