Shoppers in San Francisco are terrified after roaming gangs of thugs have terrorized malls across the Bay Area.
San Francisco police told Fox News Digital in a statement that three separate incidents took place at the Stonestown Galleria mall from March 15 to March 17.
“Over the past couple of weeks, there have altercations between young folks at Stonestown mall resulting in physical injuries,” District 7 Supervisor Myrna Melgar posted on Twitter on Sunday.
“Stonestown private security was overwhelmed and SFPD officers were deployed. Videos of the altercations have been posted and promoted on Instagram live.”
The police department said all of the thugs are teenagers.
“On Friday, several youths were pepper sprayed by other youth,” the department said. “Officers responded to the scene and the youth dispersed from the area. Officers discovered one youth suffering from injuries as a result of the physical altercation.”
Store owners and workers are terrified of the thugs and thugettes.
“I’m very scared,” food court vendor Guang Wei, who witnessed one of the fights at the food court, told CBS Bay Area. “I cannot continue to do business here in this kind of environment.”
And Mayor London Breed seems unable to summon the courage to order up more police officers.
“There are no excuses for violence, but there are steps we can take to prevent this kind of behavior from taking hold in our schools and our City,” Mayor Breed said in a lengthy joint press release with the San Francisco Unified School District on Tuesday, addressing steps being taken to address juvenile crime in the city.
“As City leaders, we are committed to working together with the School District to make sure our kids are safe and have the support they need, especially after the incredible strain on our young people caused by the last few years.”

Full video of the female juvenile attacking and clobbering Asian elder guard from behind at Stonestown Mall in San Francisco. This is unconscionable and we shouldn’t accept this. In San Francisco, you cannot punish these perps. It’s ridiculous. pic.twitter.com/jTYxKi7zw9— Asian Crime Report (@activeasian) March 21, 2023
