USA. Up to 100 looters raided the Nordstrom store in Walnut Creek

“Dozens of looters rushed to a Nordstrom store on Saturday night and stole merchandise in a raid that ended in a minute,” NBC News reported, citing local police.

ABC News claims that up to 100 attackers could have participated in the attack on Nordstrom.

As noted by NBC News, one store employee was sprayed with pepper spray and two others were beaten. All three suffered minor injuries.

The robbery took place just before the store closed before 21. It is not known yet how many goods have fallen prey to thieves.

NBC reporter Jodi Hernandez, who was in the vicinity of Nordstrom, tweeted that some 25 cars had blocked the street during the incident. In her opinion, most of the looters escaped.

The video she made at the scene shows policemen arresting and handcuffing some of the alleged perpetrators. One of the officers aims his gun at the driver involved in the robbery.

An employee of a nearby restaurant, Brett Barrett, told NBC that he had spotted 50 to 80 people with crowbars wearing ski masks.

—I had to start closing the front door, the back door. You never know, they could have entered here too, he assessed.

According to the police, three people have been arrested. Two were detained on the spot for robbery, conspiracy, break-in and possession of stolen property. One of them faces the allegation of possession of a firearm. A third person was arrested shortly after the incident.

NBC News noted that Walnut Creek police said the incident was not related to a series of protests across the country over the acquittal on Friday of teenager Kyle Rittenhouse in his trial to kill two rioters against police brutality and injuring a third. This took place in August 2020.
