“While some may indeed come to join what they believe to be peaceful protests, what is happening is not peaceful, or protest. It is a riot that sees several dozen people collectively damaging property in and near malls, breaking into businesses and pillaging interiors,” said Sergeant. Ben Hoster

Scottsdale was hit by loud protests late Saturday which created a lot of damage to retailers. Sunday morning, people lined up to help volunteers clean up after Fashion Square.

Law enforcement from Scottsdale, Mesa, Tempe, Chandler, Maricopa County and the Department of Public Security are in the area to help arrest any violator. There are no officers injured.

Investigators continue to assess the damage and have closed Scottsdale Fashion Square Mall and Camelback Road from Goldwater Blvd. to Scottsdale Road until further notice.
