Roseville Galleria Black Friday Fight Leads to Arrests
Roseville, CA - At about 12:30 a.m. on "Black Friday" morning (November 23), a fight broke out on the upper level of the mall between two groups of teenagers and young adults. We later learned that the two groups were acquainted with each other and had been bumping into each other and exchanging insults before the fight broke out. By the time officers arrived the fighters had dispersed. The fight was recorded by witnesses with cell phones and uploaded onto YouTube. Early media reports theorized that the fight involved shoppers fighting over underwear and other merchandise, but that doesn't appear to have been the case.
At 5 a.m. that morning, a Roseville teenager reported to police that someone had come to his home in central Roseville and beat on a family car with baseball bats and other objects, causing extensive damage. Officers learned that the teen had been involved in the earlier fight at the mall. It appears that the other group involved in the fight went to his house and vandalized the vehicle. Officers continued to investigate, and late Friday night went to a house in Citrus Heights and arrested four people on suspicion of felony vandalism and other related charges: A 21-year-old male, an 18-year-old female, and a 16-year-old boy, all from Citrus Heights, and a 17-year-old boy from Turlock.
