Post-Assault Tebowing

AUGUST 29--After assaulting a Pennsylvania teenager Monday morning, a man paused to mock the victim by “Tebowing,” according to cops.

Shenango Township Police Department officials report that the 17-year-old was on a riding lawn mower cutting grass outside his home when he “turned around on the road, apparently into the path of an oncoming vehicle.”

The car’s driver--who investigators describe as “a taller male, bald, wearing glasses”--exited his vehicle and approached the boy. The suspect then “knocked the juvenile off the lawn mower and assaulted him in the front yard of the residence,” according to police.

As the suspect walked back to his car (“possibly a 1980's Chrysler New Yorker maroon in color”), he was observed “stopping and kneeling down as if in prayer (a ‘Tebow’),” noted cops. The man then fled the New Castle crime scene.

Police are seeking the public’s assistance in identifying the suspect or his car, and have asked tipsters to call 724-654-2243. Investigators have classified the incident as a simple assault, a misdemeanor. (1 page)
