Police in Philadelphia have arrested around 20 people after a huge wave of looting broke out last night. A woman was streaming the chaos on social media.
A large group of about 100 juveniles were seen walking around stores, looting them. Video shows officers trying to grab the looters, some of them wearing Halloween masks. One officer even managed to hit one looter with a punch when they tackled them on the ground.
The incident happened in the middle of Walnut Street, and it also involved a Foot Locker store and an Apple store. Police said they had made between 15 and 20 arrests and had recovered two firearms. As soon as officers arrived, bikes and other items were strewn on the sidewalk.
