The Mean Streets of Walnut Creek

Downtown Walnut Creek

Yesterday a woman was shot in downtown Walnut Creek with looters targeting Broadway Plaza, Target and other stores according to SFGate, with a curfew in effect from 8pm to 5am each night through June 8th. I saw many shops being boarded up a few hours earlier including the Apple store, Main Street Kitchen & Bar, Williams-Sonoma, Zara, Camera West, Warby Parker, Sasa and elsewhere. The videos of the looters show how brazen they were. Unbelievable.

From the City of Walnut Creek:

Due to incidents of vandalism, theft and violence, the City of Walnut Creek has issued a curfew to be in effect overnight.

The City Manager, as Director of Emergency Services, imposed a citywide curfew through 5:00 a.m. on Monday, June 1.
