Ebony Towne Store, 1801 W. North Ave. — Employees tried to close the store at 3:30 p.m. on April 27, but rioters prevented them from closing a steel security door. Rioters forced their way inside, assaulting two employees. One suffered a cut to the head and a facial fracture. Another was "beaten with a fire extinguisher." After an initial wave of looting stopped, the employees were able to secure the steel door. But later, rioters tore the door down, leading to more looting and assaults of the employees before police arrived, the suit stated. The building was set on fire, and the business has been permanently closed.
