After weekend flash mob, two Philly teens charged

The 69-year-old East Falls resident was dining with her brother and sister-in-law at the Continental Mid-town at 1801 Chestnut St. when a large contingent of teenage girls materialized and started banging on the restaurant’s plate-glass windows, she said.

Such was the case with a pair of teens arrested Saturday night after more than 100 youths converged in the 1700 block of Walnut Street before making their way to 15th and Market. Police said at least three people were assaulted and a robbery occurred.
