More mayhem as 200 teens crash mall for Snapchat-planned brawl
PHILADELPHIA» The mayhem that has rippled through malls in more than a dozen states, including Colorado, continued Tuesday evening, when about 200 rowdy teenagers showed up en masse at a Philadelphia mall in a gathering planned on Snapchat, officials said.
Police responded to a report of a disturbance at the Philadelphia Mills Mall at about 6:45 p.m. A large group arrived by bus, but only about 30 or 40 were able to get inside.
“They went to the food court area and that’s when they started running around, yelling and screaming and acting disorderly,” Small told WPVI.
At least three teenage boys were arrested.
Post-Christmas brawls swept around the country and sent shoppers scrambling toward exits Monday, including at the Aurora Town Center, where five teens were arrested.
