PHOENIX – Authorities have identified the 12 people who were arrested Saturday night, eight on burglary charges, after multiple Scottsdale Fashion Square stores were damaged and looted.

The oldest suspect is 27, and the youngest is 17.

Multiple stores were vandalized and broken into Saturday. Neiman Marcus, Urban Outfitters and the Apple Store were among those targeted.

At around 11 p.m., Scottsdale police declared the gathering to be an unlawful assembly, meaning anyone who didn’t disperse was subject to arrest.

The following people were taken into custody, with age and booking charges (click here to see their mug shots if they don’t appear at the bottom of this story):

  • Taylor D. Clemons, 23, burglary third degree
  • Whitney Chennelle Hannon, 20, burglary third degree
  • Enrique Israel Espinoza, 23, burglary third degree, theft
  • Muhammad J. Ali, 22, burglary third degree
  • Christian Poineau, 22, burglary third degree
  • Peyton Elizabeth Spence, 24, trespassing
  • Lamont James Saunders, 22, trespassing
  • Stephanie Quin Nelson, 24, burglary third degree
  • Sabrin John Kamel Del, 24, burglary third degree
  • Alexander Bligh, 19, disorderly conduct with a weapon
  • Breanna Michelle Akins, 27, burglary third degree
  • Name withheld (17-year-old male)

On Wednesday, the Scottsdale Police Department said it had arrested 8 additional suspects in connection to Saturday’s looting.

Scottsdale police initially anticipated 50 to 100 people to participate in the demonstrations at the shopping center, but an estimated 500 showed up.

Mayor Jim Lane said Sunday he believed the people who turned out Saturday night were driven by criminal motives rather than expressing anti-law enforcement sentiments related to the in-custody death of George Floyd in Minnesota.

In response to multiple nights of unrest in metro Phoenix, Gov. Doug Ducey on Sunday issued a weeklong statewide curfew order for 8 p.m. until 5 a.m.

Scottsdale Fashion Square was closed Sunday, and no timetable was given for its reopening.

Most other malls and large marketplaces in the Valley closed early or did not open on Sunday.

Police didn’t report any incidents at shopping centers Sunday.

Tempe Marketplace and Desert Ridge Marketplace said they would resume operating Monday, while closing at 6 p.m. to comply with the curfew (the shopping centers initially said they’d stay open until 8 p.m. but moved up closing time.) They closed at 4 p.m. Sunday as a precaution.
