Police Officer Shot At West Oak Lane Restaurant

We hate to write about another crime in a restaurant, but a police officer was shot at a Dunkin Donuts in West Oak Lane this morning. Officer Charles Cassidy, a 25-year veteran of the Philadelphia PD, was shot when he unknowingly walked into a robbery in progress at the Dunkin Donuts on North Broad St & 66th Avenue. The shooter was described as a heavyset African-American male in his 20s, approximately 5’11”-6’ tall, with a dark hoodie, tan khaki pants, striped tan boots and a spider tattoo on his left hand.

La Salle University has cancelled all evening classes as a result.
