The Philadelphia District Attorney's Office has announced that four teens were charged in connection with the large fight that broke out in the heart of Center City late Tuesday afternoon

Mitchell Symeir, Tymere Wilder, Rashaun Green, and Kenyatta Long, all 18-years old, were formally charged with Conspiracy, Obstructing Highways, Failure to Disperse and Disorderly Conduct for a "mob" incident at 15th and Chestnut Streets. 

SkyFOX was over the scene as police moved in and arrested more than a dozen teens after a fight between two girls grew into a melee involving nearly 200.

"It got crazy. Everybody was pushing and shoving," said Nicholas Adams. The sneaker store where he worked even locked its doors.

"We didn't want them running into our store knocking stuff over. We had people inside the store who we didn't want to let out because we didn't want them to get trampled."

Police say about three schools in the area were letting out around the time the brawl happened.

Bike cops already in the area acted quickly to restore order. Police are looking to step up presence even more in wake of what happened.
