A bicyclist died after being struck by a SEPTA bus in Northeast Philadelphia on Wednesday evening 2/23. It happened around 7:40 p.m. on the 9900 block of Frankford Avenue in Torresdale. The unidentified male cyclist in his early 40's was on his bike when he was struck by the Route 66 bus. The man was taken to Jefferson-Torresdale Hospital. He was pronounced dead at 8:53 p.m. The victim's identity has not been released. No further details on the accident have been made public. This is an ongoing investigation.

Philadelphia Police have identified the patient accused of stabbing a doctor at a hospital on Tuesday, 2/23. 35-year-old Rakeem Anderson is charged with aggravated assault, possession of an instrument of crime, and simple assault. It happened at Pennsylvania Hospital located on the 800 block of Spruce Street in Center City. Anderson allegedly stabbed his doctor in the head and face while he was receiving treatment. The injured doctor received immediate treatment and is in stable condition. Anderson was taken into custody. The DA's office is requesting $999,999 bail and a mental health evaluation. Anderson also has an active bench warrant in Delaware County.

Pennsylvania Hospital Statement:
"Pennsylvania Hospital is working closely with the Philadelphia Police to respond to an incident which happened this afternoon involving a patient and a physician, who sustained injuries. Swift action by hospital staff ensured that the physician received immediate care, and they are in stable condition. There was no danger at any time to other patients or staff in the hospital. All hospital operations continue as usual, and we are cooperating with law enforcement in their investigation of this incident."

A former Montgomery County youth soccer instructor has been accused of sending sexual text messages and harassing a 14-year-old girl. 20-year-old Jordan Geller of Furlong faces several charges, including unlawful contact with a minor. The text messages began in August 2020. The investigation began in November 2020 after police were called to the victim's home in Upper Gwynedd. Geller worked as an instructor at Total Soccer in Warminster. "With what began probably as regular routine communication between a coach and student-athlete evolved into something much more inappropriate," Upper Gwynedd Township Police Chief David Duffy said. "Inappropriate texts of a sexual context, including pictures and certainly nothing that was legal between a 20-year-old and a 14-year-old."
