A man believed to be homeless is facing assault charges after a scuffle broke out at the Bridge-Pratt El terminal Wednesday morning. According to CBS 3, three SEPTA "rent-a-cops" attempted to remove the drifer from the terminal. Police say that the suspect was ordered to leave the terminal after he allegedly "began to make a nuisance of himself" in front of hundreds of passengers. A fight between the suspect and the officers resulted in both the suspect and one officer being taken to Frankford Hospital; the officer suffered a minor leg injury, while the suspect was being treated after being maced. SEPTA officials told CBS 3 that the suspect was not a commuter. Police did not identify the suspect.
