Kids caught on camera allegedly causing disruption, panic at St. Theresa Feast

Posted: Updated:
PELHAM BAY -

This year, the St. Theresa Feast celebrated its 23rd year, but after some unwelcome incidents Saturday night, the community is wondering if the event will happen next year.

Hundreds of kids were caught on camera allegedly running through the streets, causing damage to stores, breaking into cars and sending residents into a panic.

Some people say the incident takes away from the spirit of the much anticipated event and leaves residents wondering what needs to be done to prevent this from happening in the future.

Members of St. Theresa's Catholic Church wouldn't speak on camera but say they are aware of the incident. They also say they are thankful to the 45th Precinct for their service and will look into ways to avoid disturbances in the future.
