Upper Darby parents face charges after rowdy teen party

    Two Upper Darby parents are facing charges they let several hundred teenagers party at their house with alcohol over the weekend.

    Upper Darby Police Superintendent Michael Chitwood said 54-year-old Abdul Ahmaddiya and 45-year-old Nichelle Davis-Ahmaddiya were charged with corruption of minors and furnishing alcohol after nearly 300 teenagers were found partying at their home Saturday night.

    Police also cited a 17-year-old girl for alcohol violations. She’s believed to be the couple’s daughter and police say she promoted the party on social media.

    Police went to the scene following complaints about loud music and the smell of alcohol and marijuana. They found hundreds of teenagers running through yards, knocking over fences and climbing out of windows, Chitwood said.

    An attorney for the couple couldn’t be reached for comment.
