An eyewitness has provided new details in the slaying of cop Chuck Cassidy, who was killed when checking up on a North Philadelphia Dunkin’ Donuts. A Dunkin’ Donuts employee was using the bathroom when Cassidy was shot and aided the fallen cop immediately afterwards:
On Oct. 31, Beckwith was in the Dunkin’ Donuts bathroom when Lewis allegedly again entered. After she heard a gunshot and saw Cassidy fall against the window, she “grabbed paper towels and tried to apply pressure to [Cassidy’s head] wound and tried to help him,” prosecutor Selber said after the hearing.
Lewis also allegedly robbed the Dunkin’ Donuts on Torresdale Avenue near Kensington on Sept. 21; the Dunkin’ Donuts on Frankford Avenue near Shelmire on Oct. 13; Oasis Pizza on North 5th Street near Annsbury on Oct. 20; and Feltonville Pizza on Rising Sun Avenue near Front Street on Oct. 25.
Lewis was a frequent customer at Oasis Pizza, testified countergirl Yahaira Melendez.
Accused murderer Jon “Jordan” Lewis, a prolific criminal, is currently in jail. As he should be.
