A conflict involving well over 100 teens in Stockton, California, resulted in the closure of two malls as the violence spread wildly out of control.
KCRA reported that the chaos began at around 5:30 p.m. Thursday at the Weberstown Mall. Police say that between 150 and 200 juveniles were involved in a large-scale skirmish at the shopping center. Fifteen police cruisers were dispatched to the scene, and officers worked to evacuate the combatants and lock down several entrances to the mall to prevent them from coming back inside.
Once the brawling teens were escorted to the parking lot, a number of additional fistfights began to erupt as police and security tried to calm the crowd.
The group then crossed Yokuts Avenue to invade the Sherwood Mall. Seeing the crowd coming, Sherwood Mall staff placed their facility on lockdown as well. Police eventually managed to disperse the crowd, but no one was arrested.
One participant was taken to the hospital with unspecified injuries. An additional report of a female employee being assaulted at the mall's AT&T store has not been confirmed.
In video of the event, posted on social media, groups can be seen throwing punches and pulling people apart from clinches, then running when police arrive.

You gotta keep ‘em separated!
They were all described as “teens”, Jim.
Not making arrests is really dumb.
This mall has had trouble since 2017, why is this allowed to continue? Why not build tent cities in the dessert like Sheriff Joe Did and lock them up till their parents pay bail?
Musta been “Feral Day” at the mall.
Teens! I wonder if “middle school youth” or Cornpop (a bad dude!) were among them!
Has California turned into a 3rd World country, or does it just look that way?
Malls are dying. I suspect in less than 20 years, they will be suffer the fate of Drive-In movie theaters.
And the vast majority of the offenders were.......Amish...
Feral descendants of the California gold rushers again. Fighting over them that GOLD! GOLD in thar hills!!
it was the dreaded 13/90 gang.
Need we guess?
More good cheer from yutes.
Malls are dying and this is why! Can’t go in and be safe.
I thought the mayor in Stockton gave everyone free money.
Imagine security, store staff and shoppers seeing a terrifying mob of out of control, amoral, violent thugs coming toward them. Terror we should face in America.
I have viewed videos of convenience stores and other places where a mob threw products off shelves, broke liquor bottles, and pushed shoppers and the cashier around.
"no arrests were made by police."
Cause of the frightening incident
"no arrests were made by police."
correction: ....terror we should not face in America.
The good Dr. says liberal doses of this and call him in the morning.
But not in California. Yeah, just let them all run out into the parking lot and damage a few thousand cars in their crime spree. That's the ticket.
