“He needs to go to jail”: Biker attacks Philadelphia mom Nikki Bullock with children in her car in viral video, sparks outrage online
A video of a Philadelphia mom Nikki Bullock carrying her kids from the car after a biker stomped on the back windshield, shattering the glass, has outraged social media users. Many of them are even demanding the arrest of the unidentified suspect.
The disturbing incident occurred on Sunday, October 1, 2023, and was caught on video by a passerby identified as George Clooney while on a double-decker bus. Clooney was reportedly visiting Philadelphia from Florida and was on a sightseeing tour when he witnessed the horrifying incident unfold.
The footage, which was uploaded to his Instagram account, showed a man, who was riding a motorcycle alongside dirt bikes and ATV riders, get off his bike and jump on the car, shattering its windshield. As he jumped down from the vehicle, the video shows a gun fall out of his pocket.
The video then showed the driver of the car, identified as 23-year-old Nikki Bullock, get out and confront the suspect. The suspect went on to point the handgun at her face before stuffing it back down his pants. He then proceeded to headbutt her with his helmet.
Despite the attack while her children were in the car, Nikki Bullock refused to back down and shoved the suspect, who fell off his motorcycle. The clip then showed Bullock and her girlfriend, who was also inside the vehicle, carrying her two kids out of the car with the shattered windshield.
