The Philadelphia Police Department is searching for a motorcyclist who stomped on the rear window of a car after arguing with his female driver.
The video captured the moment the man broke the window, shattering the glass of the back seat where his two young children were tied.
A tourist on a bus driving behind the car recorded part of the altercation and showed that the man was not only obviously violent but also armed and dangerous.
The incident occurred on Sunday, October 1, around 8:45 pm at 1400 South Penn Square in Center City, near City Hall.
Nikki Bullock was doing an Uber Eats ride when a man on a dirt bike sideswiped her car with her children, a 5-year-old daughter and 2-year-old son, in the back.
Bullock said the motorcyclists were “not paying attention to the lanes” and hit his car.
‘So, I started arguing out the window. They began to argue back and forth. The other guy caught my attention and in the meantime he jumped off the bike and got in the car,” Bullock recalled.

“He jumped here with two feet. He took his first foot on the ground. It didn’t work, so he said… and moved on,” Bullock told NBC10.
A tourist filmed Bullock getting out of his vehicle and approaching the motorcyclist. The images appear to show him carrying a gun.
“I already saw the gun. He was trying to target the car anyway,” Bullock said. “He jumped onto the windshield. He had already gone through the windshield. He might as well get out.”
The man raised the firearm to her eye level, but she did not flinch or back away. The cyclist, still wearing his helmet, head-butted the woman. Despite being attacked, she gave everything she got and pushed her bicycle to the ground.
After a face-to-face confrontation, the unknown street rider left with his team and Bullock went to file a police report.
On Monday, October 2, he spoke with a detective about the incident.
Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner said he wants to make sure this person is held accountable for his actions, calling them “completely outrageous.”
“Whoever that person is, if they are caught and I have the opportunity to charge them, we will pursue them very vigorously for that conduct,” Krasner said, according to 6 ABC News.
The PPD is working in coordination with Krasner’s office to bring justice to the family. They are also using this as an example of why this type of cycling should not be allowed on public roads.
“This has to stop. Anyone who is on those ATVs or motorcycles, and anyone who is drifting, know that we understand how dangerous this is,” the district attorney said. “We know how much you are endangering others.” people with your behavior, and there is a price to pay for it.
