The shattered glass at a Louis Vuitton store in San Francisco was looted by more than a dozen thieves, eyewitnesses said.
The brutal robbery comes amid a spate of thefts in the Bay Area.
As of Oct. 31, the San Francisco Police Department received reports of 810 burglaries or attempted break-ins this year in the Mission District Police Department’s jurisdiction, up 13 percent from the same time last year, the San Francisco Chronicle reported.
It also comes a day after images were released of another Louis Vuitton store being robbed.
Police said Thursday that a gang of 14 thieves stole about $120,000 worth of merchandise from a Louis Vuitton store in Chicago in broad daylight.
A shocking video shows the gang entering the Oak Brook Center store one by one on Thursday after an armed guard took a short break.
Once they were all inside, the thieves took garbage bags out of their coats and leapt to every corner of the store, their bags full of designer products.
Some thieves took everything they could carry by hand and within seconds they all ran out of the store, about 18 miles west of downtown Chicago.
