San Jose Lululemon sacked as looting continues in Bay Area

Looters once again hit the California Bay Area and hit a Lululemon store in San Jose, marking the third night in a row that a store in the area was ransacked.

The suspects arrived at the store around 6:30 p.m., stole goods and fled the area, KPIX reports. The suspects were no longer at the scene when authorities arrived. The police were unable to provide more details on the matter.

Just a day earlier on Saturday, a large group of suspects looted a San Francisco-area Nordstrom in the town of Walnut Creek, as reported by Breitbart News. The incident happened around 9:00 p.m.

“We probably saw 50 to 80 people wearing ski masks, crowbars, a bunch of weapons,” a neighboring PF Chang official told ABC 7 of the incident. “They were looting the Nordstroms right here. And I thought they were going to start beating cars. I must have started locking the doors. Locked the front door, locked the back door.

“There were a lot of people. The police were arriving by plane. It was like a scene from a movie. It was crazy. ”Added the restaurant manager, according to CBS SF.

Drivers reportedly closed nearby streets before looters wreaked havoc on the department store. Jodi Hernandez, NBC Bay Area reporter tweeted that about 25 cars were blocking the road.

Three of the suspects were arrested, according to KTVU.

The suspects then brought goods to the vehicles before setting off.

A police spokesperson told NBC that some 80 suspects ransacked the Broadway Plaza Nordstrom store and one employee was pepper-sprayed, while two others were punched or kicked.

Breitbart News reported on Friday’s spate of looting at upscale Union Square stores in San Francisco. Union Square is a major tourist destination in the downtown area of ​​the city.

The Chronicle of San Francisco reported that looters had hit high-end retailers, including Louis Vuitton and Yves Saint Laurent.

A video of the incident tweeted by @StanleyRoberts shows a looter running with a pile of clothes, wearing masks on the upper and lower parts of his face. The video also shows another suspect who attempted to get into his car, presumably to flee the area, before the police crowded the vehicle.

San Francisco Mayor London Breed on Saturday addressed Friday night’s chaos, according to the Chronicle of San Francisco.

“What you saw last night was horrible,” Breed said. “We cannot allow this to happen. If you come to our city to commit these types of crimes, you will be held responsible.

John Chachas’ family own Gump’s in Union Square and have said Breed should step down.

“The mayor and his entire team should resign,” Chachas said, according to the Chronicle of San Francisco. “You can’t really run a retail business if you have to shut the windows five weeks before the critical Christmas sales season. “
