PHILADELPHIA - Police say a man has been charged in a brutal attack outside a popular Philadelphia cheesesteak shop.

The violence started early June 11 at Geno's Steaks.

Patrick Kane told news outlets he, his wife and some friends stopped for a sandwich after a wedding. He says one of his friends asked a man for a cigarette and he just "snapped" and started yelling about the Islamic State group. Kane says the man shoved her and slapped his wife and then a group attacked him.

Police say surveillance video led to tips identifying 24-year-old Alberto Lopez. Lopez turned himself in Sept. 14. He's charged with aggravated assault and related offences. No attorney information is listed in online court documents.

Police said Monday they've issued a warrant for a second man.
