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.

Saturday’s gathering was not started by social media, but took place after a large number of teens left the Coda nightclub at 1712 Walnut St. after attending an anti-smoking event, according to First Deputy Managing Director Brian Abernathy.

On this day in 1783, Pilâtre de Rozier and the Marquis d'Arlandes made the first free ascent in a balloon. They flew from the center of Paris for about five and a half miles. Benjamin Franklin was in Paris for the event. Reporting on what he saw, he wrote, "We observed it lift off in the most majestic manner. When it reached around 250 feet in altitude, the intrepid voyagers lowered their hats to salute the spectators. We could not help feeling a certain mixture of awe and admiration."
