Teens take over South Street, looting Walgreens Pharmacy


Police are searching for a group of teenagers that looted and damage property inside of a Walgreens store on 18th and South streets Thursday night.

A cashier was injured when he tried to intervene, hit in the head with a glass bottle.

“About 60 juveniles walked into the establishment and began removing things from the shelves, destroying property inside the store. The cashier attempted to intervene and some heavy item – I believe it was a bottle – was thrown at him, striking him in the head,” said Captain Sekou Kinebrew of the Philadelphia Police Department.

Before reaching the 1800 block of South Street, teens could be seen on surveillance video stopping traffic, crowding and running along the street.

While most were not misbehaving, some took advantage of the large crowd size.
