The looting on South Broad Street began shortly after midnight. Four men went inside the Robinson Luggage outlet at Broad and Walnut — through a busted glass door — and came out with about half dozen pieces of luggage. The cops immediately responded, but the men were able to run off.

At Cottman and Frankford Avenues, the celebration took a nasty turn about 12:20 a.m. Police begin breaking up the crowd to give firefighters a chance to get to some small blazes, and the people responded by throwing bottles at officers.
