 Homeless Veteran Has Died After A Group of Women Attacked Him outside a Philly Gas Station Because a Child Lied & Said He Hit Them

A homeless veteran has died months after a brutal attack outside a Philadelphia gas station that left him in a coma.  Robert Barnes, 51, died Wednesday.

Barnes was attacked by a group of six people on April 7 outside the Sunoco gas station at 5th Street and Somerville Avenue in the city’s Olney section.

The attack involved a hammer, a piece of wood and mace. The entire attack was caught on surveillance camera.

The video shows a group jump from a minivan and rush towards Barnes as he stood outside the gas station. They then punch him, stomp on him and strike him with a hammer.

After attacking Barnes, the group jumped back into the minivan and sped off.

Three adults — Aleathea Gillard, 34, Shareena Joachim, 23, and Kaisha Duggins, 24 – are charged in the case. Gillard, Joachim and Duggins all rejected plea deals and will stand trial in January. The charges are expected to be upgraded following Barnes’ death.

Police say one of Gillard’s children falsely accused Barnes, a homeless veteran, of hitting him, which prompted the attack.

Three teens, a 14-year-old boy, 12-year-old girl and a 13-year-old boy ,all pleaded guilty to aggravated assault and conspiracy and were remanded to juvenile detention centers.
