Receptionist 'BLUDGEONED to death with pipe' in Philadelphia office building as suspect arrested after vicious beating

A WOMAN is dead after being beaten to death with a pipe Wednesday afternoon, police say.

The beating took place just after 2pm at an office building on the 300 block of Chestnut Street in Old City, according to authorities.

The suspect, a 48-year-old man, has at least one office on the 8th floor of the building where the incident took place, said Philadelphia Police Chief Inspector Scott Small.

The unnamed man had a bag containing two pipes and attacked the receptionist from New Jersey, said Small. Witnesses say that blood and broken furniture were seen at the woman's desk.

The woman was rushed to Jefferson Hospital in critical condition, where she died about an hour later. Nearly 20 calls to 911 were placed during the beating.

A worker on the floor where the attack happened, said security tackled the man in the lobby before police took him into custody.

The man was arrested and brought to the homicide by officers for questioning. Currently, there is no motive for the deadly beating, however, police said that the two have had arguments in the past.
