More cops; strict curfew

Mayor Nutter said Friday that he would put more police on street patrol and make sure they enforce curfews for young people in an effort to prevent crimes caused by children and teens randomly attacking people in the city.

"To the few who think they can get away with acting violently and disrespecting our city, you will be caught, and there are serious consequences," Nutter said in a news release.

The city's current curfew law says children under the age of 13 must be home by 10 p.m., and young people between the ages of 13 and 18 must be home by midnight.
