Philadelphia PoliceA man is wanted for attacking an SUV with a sledgehammer in Philadelphia

A surveillance video from a Port Richmond parking lot has now gone viral for the disturbing events depicted within.

A risky scene involving a man with a sledgehammer was caught on surveillance cameras in a Philadelphia parking lot. But we're certain that whatever the driver of the SUV did didn't warrant a sledgehammer attack that took out all his windows.

Also, Philadelphia Police Spokesperson Captain Sekou Kinebrew said the victims have not come forward, which is kind of unusual.

The video, which was originally posted to YouTube but has since been removed, shows a red pickup truck follow a silver SUV into a parking lot.

When the SUV attempts to leave the parking lot, the passenger of the SUV falls out. The passenger gets up and begins walking toward the SUV when the pickup driver turns and hits him with the hammer and breaks the rear window of the SUV. Police are looking into the incident.

Both vehicles drove away after the road rage incident.
