Center City Office Rape Suspect Sought; Officers Shot at Distance/Same Gun at 4th July Fireworks

Philadelphia Police are searching for a suspect wanted for assaulting and raping a woman in a Center City office building on Wednesday afternoon, 7/6. It happened at 2:15 p.m. on the 200 block of North 13th Street near Race Streets. The suspect entered the building and proceeded to the 8th floor. He went into an unlocked law firm and asked the 22-year-old woman inside about a man who didn't work there. She was alone in the office. He told to sit in a chair while he rummaged through the office. He became angry and began to beat and choke her. He then sexually assaulted and raped her. He was interrupted when another employee returned from lunch. The suspect then fled the scene. He described as in his 30s, 5' 8" - 5' 11", medium build, dark complexion. He was wearing a black baseball cap, a black T-shirt and blue jeans with a black and silver belt.

Philadelphia Police say that the bullets that wounded two officers during the city's 4th of July fireworks were fired from the same gun and most likely traveled from a distance away. Chief Inspector Frank Vanore said on Wednesday the two .40 caliber rounds retrieved were fired from the same weapon. Philadelphia Officer Sergio Diggs and Montgomery County Sheriff's Deputy John Foster were standing about 20 feet apart at the base of the museum steps when they were shot. Diggs was grazed in the head and Foster was struck in the shoulder. Investigators do not believe they were targeted. The shots were likely fired from outside of the festival grounds as no ballistic evidence was recovered inside. Vanore said they came from "quite a distance away" making the investigation challenging.

District Attorney Larry Krasner said, "In the meantime, please know this: Deliberately shooting at another person is a very serious crime. Celebratory gunfire on any occasion or gunfire not aimed at another individual that nonetheless harms others is a very serious crime; applicable charges may range from Reckless Endangerment to Aggravated Assault to Murder."
