By Wednesday morning, law officials had verified the arrest of 15 to 20 persons engaged in the looting, as well as the recovery of at least two guns. According to Fox News, videos published on social sites portray images of major outlets such as Lululemon, the Apple Store, and Footlocker being invaded by hundreds of masked looters.
According to Authorities 15 To 20 People Have Been Detained for Looting
IPhones and iPads are seen sprawled over display tables in videos of a robbed Apple Store. According to Fox News, several of the Stolen Apple gadgets were subsequently abandoned owing to anti-theft measures.
According to authorities, 15 to 20 people have been detained for looting. Videos that have gone popular on the internet show rioters taking over establishments. Break-ins in Rittenhouse Square were reported soon after 8 p.m., shortly after peaceful demonstrators withdrew from a rally at City Hall to seek justice for Eddie Irizarry, who was shot and killed by a Philadelphia police officer last month.
Senior Philadelphia police officer John Stanford, on the other hand, stated that Irizarry’s supporters had nothing to do with the violence on Tuesday night.
