A large group of teenagers damaged a Wawa convenience store in Philadelphia in a ransacking caught on video.

The incident happened around 8:30 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 24, at a Wawa in northeast Philadelphia, and police said around 100 juveniles were involved, according to KYW.

Video taken from behind the store’s counter shows the group of teens throwing merchandise and dancing near the entrance.

A woman in the video can also be heard asking for the employees to make her a sandwich despite the chaos.

“Yall gonna make sandwiches or are yall just gonna keep recording,” she said.

When they dispersed, the floor was shown to be littered with store items. Shelving had also been toppled.

Philadelphia police said the group caused thousands of dollars’ worth of damage, according to WCAU.

Police did not make any arrests and continue to investigate, KYW reported.

“We are working closely with law enforcement to support their efforts to bring all of the perpetrators to justice as soon as possible,” Wawa said in a statement to WPVI. “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.”
