Long Beach, CA -

(FOX 11 / CNS) A planned, sudden assembly of individuals who attack people and businesses is expected in Long Beach Friday, police warned.

More than 100 people participated in a "Bash Mob" July 9 in the Pike and City Place areas downtown, committing thefts, property damage, and assaults, Long Beach Police Department Sgt. Aaron Eaton said. Detectives investigating the July 9 crimes found out about another event
by the same group scheduled for Friday at 2 p.m., Eaton said.

"The Long Beach Police Department takes this issue very seriously and will be prepared to arrest anyone whose intent is to commit criminal acts," Eaton said.

"We will continue to support everyone's right to free speech and assembly. However, the police must also protect the safety of those victims targeted by these `bash mobs."

The community is reminded that if you "See Something - Say Something."

Anyone with information about these types of incidents or other criminal activity is urged to call 911 or to remain anonymous visit www.lacrimestoppers.org.
