Watch rampaging youths ransack Philadelphia Wawa, twerk on counter
Dozens of rampaging youths trashed a Wawa convenience store in northeast Philadelphia Saturday night — hurling food and drinks at one another as one belligerent young woman twerked on a counter, video of the chaos shows.
Chaos erupts as a large group of people trash the Wawa at Tyson & the Blvd in NE Philly.@CBSPhiladelphia pic.twitter.com/v2wgxv1ZLZ— Steve Lindsay (@SteveLindsayCBS) September 25, 2022
The rowdy group of about 100 young people were captured on video — shot inside the chain location at 7001 Roosevelt Blvd. — as they ransacked the shop at about 8:20 p.m. and recorded the pandemonium on their phones.
An employee filming the wild scene from behind a sandwich counter in the store can be heard scolding the vandals.
“You’re all stupid,” he said in the video. “For real. You’re all stupid, ugly, broke.”
A video of the aftermath shows the store completely torn apart. The floor is covered with items pulled off shelves, spilled drinks and trash.
The unruly crowd also broke several shelves at the shop, according to the footage.
The lawlessness apparently continued into the store parking lot where the vandals were caught yelling, cursing and fighting one another, the video shows.
Philadelphia police said they responded to the scene and found approximately 100 juveniles inside the Wawa, stealing and damaging store merchandise. The officers dispersed the crowd, but made no arrests.
There were no reported injuries, cops said.
The youths unleashed anarchy inside the convenience store as crime surges across the City of Brotherly Love.
