A Nordstrom Los Angeles department store reportedly became the newest retail location on Monday evening to be hit by a flash mob-style looting attack.
This time around 20 suspects participated in a break-in in Nordstrom at the Grove, not far from the city’s Holocaust Museum and La Brea Tar Pits, Los Angeles-based KCBS-TV reported.
The suspects fled in four separate vehicles, including a Nissan SUV, when police arrived at the scene, the report said.
