Local police are calling on the community to identify and report the individuals involved in the mob attack.
“I know there are several parents that will look at this and say, ‘That’s not how I raised my kids,’ and that’s understandable. But also there is a responsibility to then identify your kids to us,” Deputy Police Commissioner John Sanford said in a press conference Monday.
“The bottom line is: we cannot have this type of behavior happening in this city. The business community doesn’t deserve that, the citizens don’t deserve it,” the deputy commissioner added.
Fox also reports the local police officers are working with the area district attorney to decide what charges the suspects will face. The teens may be charged with felony rioting.
Wawa released a statement responding to the incident.
“We are working closely with law enforcement to support their efforts to bring all of the perpetrators to justice as soon as possible,” the statement said. “We remain committed to protecting our associates and customers and ensuring a safe, welcoming environment for each customer, in every Wawa store. Nothing is more important to us.”
National radio host Todd Starnes slammed the “thugs and thugettes” in a commentary from the weekend.
“This is what life looks like in a city controlled by Democrats,” Starnes said.
