WALNUT CREEK— Three suspects were arrested in Contra Costa County during a night of looting organized on social media. They allegedly participated with a mob of 80 hooligans who ransacked a Nordstrom store in downtown Walnut Creek.

This melee erupted on November 20 at approximately 9 p.m. The mob entered the store and immediately began stealing merchandise. Two employees were assaulted, and one was pepper sprayed.

Merchandise was stolen from shelves and display cases were smashed, and looters ran to waiting cars outside. They sped away from the scene, and some with their license plates covered.
