Both the victim and the offender in the incident are unknown to police.

The entire incident was captured on surveillance video by a nearby business.

However, it's one activity that Kate Middleton - who recently gave birth to Prince Louis - doesn't get involved in, and there's a good reason why.

There's a lot of road rage videos out there, and some are pretty wild.

During the attack a passenger in the SUV opens his door and falls out as the driver tries to speed away.

That's when the attacker hits that person with a sledgehammer, before breaking more windows. When the passenger attempts to reenter the SUV, the suspect strikes him with the sledgehammer and breaks the rear window of the SUV. The driver of the pickup blocks the SUV and gets out, holding a sledgehammer. "No one is safe", said Eddie Thaxton, who works across the street and was on scene minutes after the confrontation. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Philadelphia Police Department at 215-686-TIPS.
