It's the new "chivalrous" version of the knockout game. The assailant in this rendition is not some punk kid. His attack is not intended as a prank and is not captured by his compatriots for posterity. There is a visual record of the man, whose identity police are attempting to ascertain.

New York's Daily News has the lowdown:

Police [in suburban Philadelphia] are searching for an overprotective father who assaulted a man for looking at his daughter.

The Upper Darby Police Department ... has released a picture of the man and his daughter who were in a Wawa convenience store Sunday when police said the man did not approve of how another male was looking at his child.

The suspect (who could use a bra himself) punched the ogler in the face. He and his curvaceous daughter then turned and exited, but not before a security camera captured their likenesses.

According to Philly.com, the unidentified 47-year-old victim was ordering a sandwich when the indignant dad approached him, accused him of eyeing his daughter, and cold-cocked him. The victim, who is believed to have suffered a concussion, was taken to Delaware County Memorial Hospital for treatment.

Upper Darby police Superintendent Michael Chitwood told reporters:

If somebody's looking at your daughter, why don't you confront him instead of punching him? This guy's not an overprotective father ... That's just his excuse for thumping the guy.
