Philadelphia police investigating after juveniles ransack Wawa on Roosevelt Boulevard

PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) — Philadelphia police are investigating after a group of youths looted a Wawa in the city’s Mayfair neighborhood on Saturday night.

It happened around 8:22 p.m. at the store on the 7000 block of Roosevelt Boulevard.

Police said officers arrived at the scene and observed about 100 youths damaging the store.

No injuries were reported, but residents of Action News have expressed outrage at the incident.

One woman, who asked not to be identified, says she often thinks twice before entering the store.

“Sometimes I’m afraid to quit, it’s a shame,” she said.

The video showed the youths inside the store throwing groceries and damaging the store.

The police are still looking for the people involved.

“I was angry. I was very upset because in the role of these employees I know how scary it is and how frustrating it is to have to clean up afterward as well,” said former employee Kaitlyn Holtzman.

Wawa released this statement on the incident:

“We are working closely with law enforcement to support their efforts to bring all perpetrators to justice as quickly as possible. We remain committed to keeping our employees and customers safe and providing a safe and welcoming environment for every customer in every Wawa store. Nothing is more important to us.”

Anyone with information regarding this case is asked to call 215-686-TIPS.
