Philadelphia police are on the hunt for eight suspects in connection to the brutal beating of a woman on a downtown street late last month.

There was no word on possible motives for the assault, WPVI said.

'They will reap what they sow'

Numerous commenters on the police department's Facebook post about the brutal beating were disgusted by it:

  • "It’s unfortunate that Philadelphia has an endless supply of these low-life sub-human leftists," one commenter wrote.
  • "This is disgraceful," another commenter said. "Time to find and prosecute!"
  • "Shame on them and their parents that didn’t teach them. Terrible. They will reap what they sow," another commenter predicted. "God please help Philly to get a new administration that will prosecute."
  • "Let some of this happen to me ... you won't have to worry about burying your children — you won't be able to find them," another commenter promised.
  • "What in God’s name is wrong with this young generation?" another commenter wondered.
