Video posted to Twitter by @Yealenne showed the storefront with broken glass on the sidewalk.

Another dramatic clip from user @CARLITOSGUEY showed what appeared to be some of the suspects fleeing the store followed by police arriving in a patrol car, swarming a suspect’s vehicle, striking it with their batons and dragging a person to the street.

One eyewitness told KPIX that more than a dozen people could be seen running out of the store clinging to merchandise, hauling off as much as they could carry.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the San Francisco police department at (415) 575-4444 or text a tip to TIP411 and start the message with SFPD.
