With record warm temperatures Friday night, police in Center City and North Philadelphia were forced to spend time dealing with crowds of teens that had some thinking back to last year’s flash mob scares.
At one point, a crowd of teens walking on Chestnut Street west of Broad Street forced the Shops at Liberty Place to lock its doors at 6 p.m., CBS3 reported.
“Nobody was letting anyone come in or out because everyone was really, really nervous,” customer Annie Perkins-Link told CBS3. “Security guards were everywhere and a lot of the store personnel were kind of scared.”
Elsewhere Friday night, South Street was abuzz and police were scattered about as folks made their way outdoors to enjoy the exceptionally warm February evening.
