Hundreds of teens reportedly formed a “flash mob” after an event at a recreation center in Germantown on Sunday.

According to 6ABC, the teens assembled around 9:30 p.m. on the 1000 block of Chelten Avenue, near the Lonnie Young Recreation Center.

Police responded and attempted to disperse the large crowd, which they said was made up largely of youths between 12 and 17 years old. Officers reportedly asked some local business to close early after things turned “violent,” according to 6ABC.

Some of the teens reportedly jumped on top of cars, threw glass bottles and surrounded vehicles.

No officers or teens were hurt. Police said no arrests were made in order to prevent the situation from escalating.
