A Mount Laurel man has been arrested and taken into custody on Monday, 7/5, after he was caught on video harassing, threatening, and screaming racial slurs at a Black neighbor. 45-year-old Edward Cagney Mathews is charged with harassment, bias intimidation, and assault. It happened around 8 p.m. Friday, 7/2, in front of the victim's home. Mathews threatened the man, calling him a 'monkey' and the 'n-word' several times. Police arrived and Mathews went home. Before he left, he gave out his address on Gramercy Way to the person recording the incident on video. On Monday, 7/5, the video started to go viral and protestors appeared outside Matthews' home. A large crowd had grown by the time police took him into custody. Mathews had to be led out through the crowd. There have been other complaints about Mathews in the past.

"The Mount Laurel Police Department does not tolerate hate or bias intimidation in any form. This type of behavior is totally unacceptable," a police spokesperson wrote. "We can assure our residents that incidents like this are thoroughly investigated and that those who commit such offenses will be held accountable for their actions."

Two young men were killed and a teen girl was injured after a shooting in West Philadelphia on Sunday night, 7/4. It happened around 10:30 p.m. on 60th between Walnut and Chestnut. 23-year-old Sircarr Johnson Jr., the owner of Premiere Bande clothing store, had put out an invitation for a free community BBQ for the Fourth of July. The store is located on that block. Around 100 shots were fired. Johnson was shot and killed. A 22-year-old man was also shot and killed. A 16-year-old girl was shot and taken to the hospital in stable condition. No arrests have been made.

Philadelphia Police are searching for two female suspects wanted in the stabbing of a 20-year-old man in Center City early Friday morning, 7/2. It happened around 2:30 a.m. on the 1000 block of Walnut Street. The victim was sitting down when he was approached by a Black female and a white female. The Black female stabbed him in the neck. The two women fled. The man was taken around the corner to Jefferson University Hospital in critical condition. He remains in the hospital. The two suspects are wanted for aggravated assault. Suspect #1 is described as a Black female with long hair, wearing a tank top, blue shorts and white shoes. Suspect #2 is described as a white female with long hair, wearing a black dress and sandals.
