19 teens got arrested at a Chicago mall on Saturday (Feb. 23). Classified as a mob, the 19 teens who got arrested were between the ages of 13 and 18. According to a report from Sunday (Feb. 24), the disturbance ended up shutting down the Chicago shopping mall and actually led to two people getting injured.
The report went on to state that most of the teens were charged with misdemeanor mob action, but one 16-year-old got charged with battery of a mall security guard. Apparently the guard was simply trying to evacuate the mall when the alleged crime took place.
In addition to the teens causing chaos inside the mall, police states that the disturbance continued into the parking lot with the teens climbing up on top of cars. This all went down at the Ford City Mall, with the police officers on scene reporting that around 4:45 p.m. a group of around 30 people started causing trouble. 19 teens from that group were arrested at the mall, but some witnesses stated that there were more than 100 people running through the mall.
One of the people that was injured had to be taken to the hospital (a bus driver) after being hit by a thrown object.
