PHILADELPHIA, PA – The legendary battle between Geno’s and Pat’s will always rage on in Philadelphia, but last week, things got out of control during an argument near Pat’s. The incident probably was not related to who has the better steak, but it was caught on video by a surveillance camera at Pat’s.
Below is a police report and video of the incident:
On December 27, 2020 at approximately 5:45 AM, the suspects, an unknown male and female, were captured on surveillance video at Pat’s Steaks located at 1200 South 9th Street. During an argument, one suspect is seen removing a firearm from the bag of a different suspect. The first suspect attempted to get at someone, however, bystanders intervened. When the crowd scattered, that suspect fired several gunshots into the air. They both fled in an SUV.
