Looting Fifth Avenue And Macy's

Looters ransack Fifth Avenue and Macy's: More than 200 are arrested on second night of smash-and-grab chaos as NYC curfew is moved from 11pm to 8pm and violence erupts in the Bronx where NYPD officers were beaten and run over

Crowds of looters overran Manhattan's Midtown on Monday night in a second night of violence and riots that have prompted officials to crack down further on the chaos and move the city's 11pm curfew to 8pm despite claiming that the city was 'fully under control'. The looters smashed the store fronts of designers but were also seen ransacking Duane Reades and independently owned smoke shops as they snatched all they could before being rounded up by NYPD cops. They pillaged stores on Fifth Avenue and Madison Avenue more than an hour before the 11pm curfew began. Further uptown, violence broke out in the Bronx where an NYPD officer was run over and others were beaten in the street. The carnage at nightfall came after a day in which thousands protested peacefully across the city over the death of George Floyd, a 46-year-old black man who was killed in Minneapolis last Monday when a police officer knelt on his neck for nearly nine minutes.
