June 4, 2020

Protests in Brockton turned into looting and destruction this week.

Multiple buildings were damaged, set on fire, or looted as people in the city protested the death of George Floyd, who died at the hands of a Minneapolis police officer last month.

Dunkin’ Donuts on North Montello Street was vandalized and had flammable objects thrown at it.

Other businesses that had their burglar alarms set off include Metro by T-Mobile, Family Dollar, and CVS, and Tamboo Bistro also got broken into, according to Cody Shepard of the Brockton Enterprise, reporting on Twitter.

According to the Twitter account Monitoring Scanners, more than 10 people broke into Family Dollar.

Another Enterprise reporter confirmed that the T-Mobile was looted sometime late Tuesday, June 2 or early Wednesday, June 3.
