NORTH PHILADELPHIA — A SEPTA transit cop struggles with an alleged fare jumper, and it was all caught on camera. It happened at the Cecil B. Moore station near Temple University.

Police said the suspect, Ernest Hays, was avoiding arrest and threw SEPTA police officer Samuel Washington on the ground and then pinned him under a bench.

Officials said he was wanted in connection with a SEPTA ticket scam when Officer Washington stopped him. The chief said not a single SEPTA passenger called for help but this lady did take out her phone to record the fight.
