The fearless Philadelphia mother who stared down a gun-wielding biker who stomped on her car and broke her rear windshield is speaking out about the incident. The incident occurred outside of city hall on Sunday night. Video that was shot by a tourist shows the biker hitting Nikki Bullock’s car and then eventually stomping on it, smashing through the back window.
Bullock told NBC Philadelphia that at the time she was delivering food for Uber Eats along with her partner’s children, 5 and 2. ‘I just wanted to protect my kids,’ Bullock said in the aftermath of the terrifying encounter in which nobody was seriously injured. After their initial interaction, the biker then pulled a gun on Bullock, 23. ‘It was a little gun and, at that point, my windshield was already broken, so what was he really going to do to me, for real?’ she added.
Bullock said that the dispute began when she changed lanes around the horde of bikers. ‘They’re not paying attention to lanes. They’re just doing whatever. So I’m turning in the lane and he just hits the side of the car,’ she said. The pair shared words, and that’s when the biker began to attack her car, which prompted her to then exit the car and confront him head-on.
‘He jumped up here with two feet. He stepped his first foot down. Didn’t work, so, then he was like… and, went through.’ In the video, the biker falls as he jumps through the windshield. When he gets off the car, what appears to be a gun falls out of his pocket. He picks it up just as Bullock appears. The pair exchange more words as the biker backs away. He even strikes her, while wearing a helmet, before pointing the gun at her.
Bullock stands her ground and even pushes the biker off his bike when he attempts to flee the scene. ‘I’m just grateful that my kids are okay. There’s not a scratch on them. It was just the simple fact that I had kids in the car. I just wanted to protect them honestly,’ Bullock said. In a separate interview with ABC Philadelphia, ‘[The children] are ok. Not a single scratch. I have a guardian angel. Thank god.’
Bullock earlier told CBS Philadelphia that the children in the car were crying during the altercation. ‘The only thing that protected my kids from not having a bunch of glass from shattering on top of them is that my back windshield was tinted,’ she told the affiliate. The footage was shot by George Coloney, who was visiting the so-called City of Brotherly Lov e from Florida.
‘I just started filming a video of all the bikers when next thing you know this guy hops off and jumps on this lady’s car,’ Coloney said to NBC 10. ‘For him to take it that far, it’s just out of control to the point where many people could’ve died in an instant,’ he said. Philadelphia police released photos appearing to show the suspect on Monday. It’s been reported that they have a person of interest in the incident. ‘Justice will come to light and it’s only a matter of time,’ Bullock told CBS Philadelphia. She also said that thanks to the public’s generosity, the repairs have already been paid for.
‘Justice will come to light and it’s only a matter of time,’ Bullock said. ‘If that person is caught and I get the chance to charge that person, we will be going very, very vigorously,’ District Attorney Larry Krasner said. When discussing the problems of dirt bikes and ATVs on city streets, Krasner said that police are in a difficult situation because police cannot regularly engage in high-speed chases along city streets. The DA did say that the strategy for stopping the wide-scale use of the vehicles is a matter for technology, including wiretapping.
‘This has gotta stop. Anyone who is out there on those ATVs or motorbikes, and anybody who is out there drifting, please know we understand how dangerous this is. We know how much you are endangering other people with your conduct and there is a price to pay for that,’ Krasner said in a separate interview with ABC Philadelphia. It is the latest incident in a string of lawlessness to hit the city. Last week, dozens of masked looters smashed their way into an Apple Store running away with iPhones and tablets as the city dealt with widespread crime.
Philadelphia Police Department surveillance camera footage, showing brazen thugs rioting through the Apple store on Walnut Street in the center of the city. Masked thieves forcefully infiltrated the store, swiftly seizing iPhones, laptops, tablets, and anything within reach on display stands — finishing their plunder in less than a minute. Most suspects appeared to be teenagers including one audaciously strolling out, lugging a massive television monitor with no sense of urgency.
