Exterior of train 4. SOUNDBITE (English) Thomas Nestel III, SEPTA Transit Police Chief: "(Reporter: Is there any indication through social media or other tips to your department that somebody on the trip filmed it? Is there any other footage circulating out there that you know?)I can tell you that people were holding their phone up in the direction of this woman being attacked.(Reporter: Is it safe to say from the video inside the train that people witnessed this happening and, as you said, maybe didn't understand what they were seeing? I mean, what was the mood inside?)I don't know what's running through the minds in folk's heads, but it concerns me enough to want to have a conversation with you folks to get the message out that if people see behavior that is unusual and inappropriate on the trains, on the busses and stations, we want to know about it. We hear all the time. 'I didn't want to bother you.' Bother us. Bother us."5. Various of train and station ANNOTATION: More than two dozen train stops passed as the man harassed, groped and eventually raped the woman. Police do not believe a single witness on the train dialed 911. Officers responded within about three minutes of a 911 call from a transportation authority employee at the train's last stop.ASSOCIATED PRESSNew York - 18 October 2021 6. Elizabeth Jeglic, Professor of Psychology at John Jay College of Criminal JusticeANNOTATION: Elizabeth Jeglic, a psychology professor at the John Jay College of Criminal Justice, researches sexual violence prevention. She said if people feel uncomfortable physically intervening, there are other options like calling the police. ++DIP TO WHITE TRANSITION++ 7. SOUNDBITE (English) Elizabeth Jeglic, Professor of Psychology at John Jay College of Criminal Justice:"I was shocked and saddened, obviously, as a human being, as a sexual violence prevention researcher. It is worrisome. It is in line with a lot of the research that has historically been shown about bystander effects. When we have multiple people, people don't necessarily intervene. However, more recent research actually suggests that looking at video footage of more extreme circumstances that up to 90 percent of cases we do see people intervening. So it was actually somewhat of an aberration in this case that somebody did not step forward to help this this individual."STORYLINE:Authorities say a man charged with raping a woman on a commuter train just outside of Philadelphia harassed her for more than 40 minutes while multiple people held up their phones to seemingly record the assault without intervening.
