Women dump rats into Philly home in fight over man

By Associated Press

LAST UPDATED: 01:28 a.m. HST, Apr 04, 2014

PHILADELPHIA >> Philadelphia police are looking for several suspects in what appears to be a case of rat retaliation.

Investigators said an ongoing dispute over a man escalated late Wednesday, when a woman in her 20s, her mother and a pack of eight or nine other women went to the victim's house with a baseball bat and a box containing an unknown number of white rats.

The group allegedly bashed in windows and the front door and then dumped the rodents into the home.

Police said one woman in the group also punched the 30-year-old victim and took her purse.

Authorities are trying to track down the suspects.

A family member of the victim was taken to the hospital amid the commotion to be checked out for a possible heart problem.

Wondering if the white rats indicate ethnicity of the parties involved. The part that is confusing about this story is: authorities are tracking down suspects when they indicate a woman in her 20's together with her mother and pack of 8 or 9 other women went to victim's home and created the mayhem. Could be the 30 year old victim know who the other woman is??

If that man left that "woman in her 20s", I think we all know why.

this story sounds a bit sketchy, with very limited details. When any of the six Women are caught and questioned, I'm sure the interrogators will have their hands full. This because none of the Women want to "Rat" on the other!
