A PHILADELPHIA man who chased his ex around the 69th Street Terminal in Upper Darby on Tuesday, trying to swab her for DNA, has managed to make the "Maury Show" seem like a classy alternative in paternity testing.
It remains to be seen if Elonte Chancellor-Brown is the father of the child in question, but his questionable methods of trying to obtain the answer ended with him and his buddy receiving harassment citations, according to police.
Upper Darby Police Superintendent Michael Chitwood said cops got a 9-1-1 call about 7:40 p.m. Tuesday from a woman who said she had locked herself in a bathroom stall at the 69th Street Terminal because she was being chased by a man with a gun.
When officers arrived, they chased a man later identified as Chancellor-Brown, 22, of Philadelphia, out of the bathroom and took him into custody. Also detained was Chancellor-Brown's friend, Raashan Coleman, 27, of Philadelphia. Both men were given summary harassment citations. Neither was in possession of a weapon, police said.
According to Chitwood, Chancellor-Brown's 19-year-old ex-girlfriend and her friend were in the terminal when they were approached by Chancellor-Brown and his friends. The ex-girlfriend claimed that Chancellor-Brown is the father of her child,
The two women said the men followed them around the terminal, so they went into the women's restroom to escape. But the women were followed in there as well, according to police, so they locked themselves inside a stall.
"Brown was attempting to get a DNA swab from one of the victims as they have a child together and he was conducting a paternity test," Chitwood said.
Chancellor-Brown was unsuccessful in his paternity quest, police said, and he's also out of the running for father of the year.
