Police in Long Beach were preparing for an expected “bash mob” to coincide with Red Bull Flugtag, which brings thousands to the city to watch strangely dressed people ride strangely designed machines off a pier and into the water.
Bash mobs target stores and businesses all while causing
massive property damage.
Long Beach police learned of the allegedly planned mob attack through social networking sites.
Anyone who sees a large group of people quickly gathering should call police, authorities said.
