CENTER CITY – Forty-year old Steven Mason has now been booked on serious charges in this life threatening attack on SEPTA Police Officer Ronald Jones Monday afternoon. Authorities believe that Officer Jones’ brave struggle with Mason, coupled with help from riders and officers arriving on the scene prevented a tragedy.
“He stayed on his feet, he stayed engaged. He protected the public. He used the tools he’s equipped with. He was fast. He did a fabulous job,” SEPTA Police Chief Thomas Nestel told FOX 29 Wednesday.
Now FOX 29 has obtained SEPTA surveillance video showing another Good Samaritan stopping Mason as he harassed a young woman and her infant onboard a SEPTA train just moments before police say Mason attacked Officer Jones.
“She moves from her seat and he follows her, he then swats at the baby,” Chief Nestel explained. “It looks as if he’s trying to get control of that child.”
Nestel says the woman came to the young mother’s rescue. Warding off Mason and escorting her away from the imposing suspect at least twice. Then, she physically blocked him from approaching the young mom and her baby.
