GREENVILLE, S.C. Greenville police are investigating vandalism at a restaurant, an attempted robbery and an assault all in downtown Greenville. They believe teens from the same group are responsible for all three incidents.
The general manager of Grill Marks told WYFF, a group of teens walked into the restaurant around 9:30 Wednesday night, spent a few minutes inside and then proceeded to the outdoor seating area where they squirted ketchup all over the tables, walls, and floors. They also smashed salt shakers on the street. Surveillance video captured the teens in the restaurant.
"It's just a pain because we had to go out there, clean all the tables, all the walls front and back, scrub everything on the patio last night so it kept everyone here later, so it was annoying," said general manager Kyle Marsh.
In the same time frame, police said there was an attempted robbery of a 24-year-old man on S. Main Street near Carolina Ale House and an assault and battery of an 18-year-old at Falls Park.
Police said these incidents also involved teens.
Officers said they were able to detain the persons responsible for the assault and battery at Falls Park.
Police said they believe all the teens were together at some point and possibly dispersed to commit these different crimes.

Downtown Greenville is a great place. A river and beautiful waterfalls, great restaurants and entertainment. I love taking visitors from out of town down there. They are always impressed. But these feral youths are ruining it. We have a weekend curfew because of them that has been in effect for some time now, but this was a week night. I fear these types of actions will get worse. Don't know what the answer is but I feel like it probably involves a firearm.
This summer should be fun. :(
Makes one wonder, eh?
After all, the MSM is often painfully transparent in identifying perp characteristics by NOT identifying perp characteristics.
Journalists are sooooo simple.
Golly, the cameras were so bad that they couldn’t tell what race these perps were . . . and who’d believe the lying eyes of the witnesses that they were “black” perps?
This is disgusting that we have to live through this contempt for law and order just because we have that illegal alien and his hefty wife living in our White House.
I’ve been there several times. Greenville prides itself on its downtown. I’m surprised they allowed this to be printed. Gville can’t afford to scare people away from downtown.
Yup, looked at the video.
I love going downtown but not sure I’ll be going back any time soon. It is beautiful, especially in the spring. Beautiful gardens. It makes me sick.
Greenville is amazing I hope the large city problems don’t infest our city.
If I lived in a city like Gville, I would have a CCW. Even here, I carry a knife but I think it’s the law.
If they did this where I live, the people with CCW’s would form a line to shoot them.
Har! Yep it’s those darned Amish again! If they do this often enough justice may be served. I know several people in that area who carry concealed. Too bad they didn’t get caught and made to go back and clean up the restaurant with tooth brushes though!
It isn’t their color that makes them “Obama people” it’s their mind and spirit.
While this stinks and needs to be stamped out, it looks to be about two orders of magnitude less obnoxious than what has recently been going on in Chicago.
Absolutely, but it seems things are getting worse. At what point do citizens just have to take the law into their own hands?
As a CCW holder in Indiana I wonder what I would do if I were a patron of that restaurant and was confronted with that situation.
Obviously,Chicago needs to sent some community organzing!
Yes. A concealed weapon hidden under clothing. A decent caliber and extra magazines. When one of these goons gets killed trying to hurt others, the others will think twice.
If the Amish wear hoods, then those are definitely Amish.
Greenville has come a long way. I vaguely remember that area as kid in the 70s and thought it was a dreary place. Downtown is very nice.
The "mind and spirit" goes with the color. You know that, though.
Time to give “Holder’s Peeps” something to think about: whips and red-hot irons come to mind.....
Had this happened in Houston, there would be some dead feral teens.
“...its their mind and spirit.”
No argument with that, but isn’t it a strange coincidence that the perps are all of the same shade?
When you’ve been raised with a false sense of entitlement and victimhood, and the AJ says he’s not going to prosecute “his people”, this is what you get - brazen criminal acts.
Word gets around and people avoid the downtown area, and the whole community suffers as a result. And there is no recovery as long as people don’t feel safe anymore.
This is what happens when a group of people allow themselves to be victimize by a government that destroys their family structure. When there is no daddy in the home to take a kid out behind the woodshed when needed they turn into feral hoodie thugs.
Well, it looks like many black teens have given up on civilized behavior.
That implies that they ever behaved in a civilized manner.
“But these feral youths are ruining it.”
Make that “feral black youths”, generally described as “teens”. Economic, cultural and political conditions have been intentionally created by zero which lead to lawlessness and racial insurrection.
...real estate bump....
...real estate bump....
The last time I was there I saw so many families out for a stroll.
I agree, it’s a beautiful place.
Yeah - just wait until it gets hot.
Just another day of Black Ku Klux Klan Racism....
and most of its beyond, far beyond...."annoying"...
I guess they did’t learn nuthin’ from Treyvon...
Yep...or just about any city in Texas. Wonder what the CCW laws are there.
On a rating or probability scale from 1 to 10. One being the probability that they weren’t, 10 being the probability that ther were. I would give it a 25.
I suppose they'd rationalize their dismal record of reporting by saying that everyone knows who's doing the violence anyway, so why rock the boat and get called names.
That these non-specific "teens" are coincidentally black thugs seems to be as difficult to prove as Sasquatch. Nobody in the MSM's going to believe it until somebody shoots one and takes pictures.
The new word for black is “teens”. It’s always “teens” now when you read a story of a group of BLACK people doing violent things. Bring that crap down here to Montgomery Texas and see what happens, the story would read much different. Headline: White man shoots into group of “teens” at restaurant. That would be me folks........ain’t happening here. I hate that these idiots give the great black folks in this country who live like the rest of us a bad name. I know these crooks only represent a very small portion of the black community just like the caucasions have their idiot white trash running around. I am white and see plenty of white idiots out there as well, but they are not usually running around in packs and attacking blacks.
They have pictures. They’re black.
Does the name George Zimmerman come to mind?
At some point in the near future you will probably change your mind about that.
And of course, we have whites jumping in to say, “It’s not because they’re black!!!!” And “Whites do this kind of thing, too!!!” Meanwhile, where are the decent, law-abiding blacks condemning this behavior? I never see or hear them. Oh, sure, Bill Cosby has allegedly said a thing or two, and got slammed for it, too. But clearly, blacks condone this behavior while whites call them “teens” and make excuses for them.
When one of these goons get killed, the others will be joined by thousands of other amish, who will proceed then to burn down the city, helping themselves along the way to flat-screen TVs, IPads, and lots of other toys at steep discounts. It will be a repeat of the race riots of the seventies.
I lived through two of those, one in Augusta, Georgia, only about 90 miles from Greenville. It will make for an ugly, nasty summer, and many of the folks who have acquired scary-looking rifles over the last year or so will find occasion to use them. I already make it a point to drive 30 or more miles away from urban centers in my travels. I think I'll increase that to 60.
You are spot on Spartan. It’s just a matter of time until they screw with the wrong person and then all hell will break lose.
Except that if they were white, it would be all over the news and presstitutes would be asking “what’s wrong with white children”?
I emailed the police dept. about the situation. They assured me it was because it was spring break and all is well downtown and I should feel safe. Well, I don’t.
