BALTIMORE (WMAR) — Several Baltimore Police units converged on the parking lot of a Northwest Baltimore discount store, after a large unruly group of people surrounded an officer that was on scene investigating their illegal activity.

It happened just before 10 p.m. Saturday outside Rose's Discount Store in the area of Wabash Avenue and W. Northern Parkway.

Baltimore Police say 100 to 150 people were gathered at the lot with their vehicles, conducting illegal acts.

An officer pulled up on the group and got out of his vehicle to investigate. That's when the officer started getting surrounded and called for help.

Multiple officers responded and were able to break the crowd up.

No officers were injured and no one was arrested according to police.

Police said they couldn't confirm reports that the group began kicking the officer's car.

It's unclear what the group was doing illegal.
