A police station in Philadelphia, Penn. was vandalized Thursday night by a group of people claiming to be anarchists, according to reports.

The South Street Philadelphia police station, equipment and vehicles were trashed by a group of eight to 10 anti-police anarchist wearing masks. Red paint in glass bottles were thrown at the building, and multiple car windows were smashed.

Officers know that a group of anti-police anarchists were responsible because they left a bunch of their flyers on the street near the police station.

Police also told that a “firework style smoke grenade” was set off in front of the station, leaving a blue stain on the sidewalk.

“Lets keep our brave men and women in blue in our prayers as they protect all the citizens regardless of how some citizens may feel towards the Police. All persons are still at large and the incident is still being investigated,” Officer Victor McKnight posted on his Facebook page, with images and information about the crime.

Police have not yet released the details of the anarchist flyers left behind. No suspects have yet been arrested, and no one was injured.
